Cascades West Area Commission on Transportation
The Cascades West Area Commission on Transportation (CWACT) provides a forum for local governments to communicate and collaborate on local, regional and state transportation issues. The CWACT is chartered by the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC) as an advisory body and provides input, advice and recommendations to the OTC and ODOT.
All local governments within Benton, Lincoln and Linn Counties are eligible to appoint an elected representative to serve on the CWACT. In addition, each County may appoint two private sector representatives to the CWACT. The ODOT Area Manager also serves as a member of the CWACT. In addition to these voting members, the CWACT has a number of non-voting ex officio members (see bylaws).
A major role of the CWACT is to solicit public input on transportation needs and to provide recommendations to ODOT and the OTC on project priorities for the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The CWACT provides input on state transportation plans, policies and programs and maintains an inventory of transportation system improvement needs.
