Public Involvement is a vital component in transportation planning. Public participation provides citizens access to the decision making process as well as a way to voice ideas and needs.


Citizens Involvement Committee

The AMATS Citizens Involvement Committee (CIC) is the forum through which the public may weigh in directly on transportation-related matters. Through its open-meeting format, CIC members may freely discuss issues with AMATS staff members and other players in the region’s planning process. The AMATS staff works closely with the CIC members to identify potential discussion topics and in the preparation of necessary meeting materials and the scheduling of guest speakers. The committee meets regularly and its membership is open to all who wish to participate. Regular meetings commence at 6:30pm and are usually held in the Akron-Summit County Public Library located at 60 South High Street, Akron, OH 44326, which is centrally located and transit accessible in the Greater Akron area. Additional committee meetings may be scheduled by the CIC members if they so desire, and location may change as needed.

What’s Happening Next?

The CIC is scheduled to meet six times in 2021.  Meetings will be held via Zoom at 6:30 pm until further notice, with the hopes of returning to the Main Library – Akron Summit County Public Library at some point during the year.
