Project TeamPlanning Advisory GroupTechnical Advisory PoolConsultants

The Technical Advisory Pool (TAP) for the Airport Futures Planning process is a pool of organizations and agencies with specialized expertise that will be available to the PAG, PAG subcommittees, City and Port project staff, and the community to address questions on technical issues at any point in the process as well as at key milestones.

The TAP will be briefed regularly on the planning process by project staff and will have additional meetings as needed. The TAP will only address specific technical questions, not deliberate on broader policy issues. Project staff will report back to the PAG on TAP meetings.

TAP meetings and meeting notes will be posted on the Airport Futures website under the Document Library/Technical Advisory Pool tab. Members of the TAP are listed below:
