Community Advisory Group

As part of the CSS process, IDOT will be forming a Community Advisory Group (CAG). A CAG is considered a key interface in the public engagement process because IDOT understands that the success of a project is contingent upon the participation and feedback from affected stakeholders.

The CAG will be comprised of community leaders, including elected officials, representatives from local municipalities, homeowners, business owners, and stakeholders with expertise or technical interest in the areas of environmental, land use, transportation, and economic development within the study area. The CAG is an advisory group and is responsible for gathering concerns from their respective groups and sharing those concerns at the CAG meetings. In addition, they are responsible for conveying the information they receive at the meetings back to their respective groups. The CAG also ensures that project solutions balance community, technical and long-range planning needs. The CAG also assists in keeping the project on the right track with respect to implementation and provides input at key project milestones throughout the study process. CAG meetings will be designed to encourage timely and meaningful input by members.
