Avondale Mayor Kenn Weise was recently elected chairman of the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) Transportation Policy Committee.

The MAG Regional Council established the Transportation Policy Committee in 2002 to oversee the development of the 20-year Regional Transportation Plan and to guide transportation planning in the region.

The TPC is made up of 23 members representing cities and towns across the region, the business community, the Arizona Department of Transportation, Maricopa County, the Native American Indian Community, and the Citizens Transportation Oversight Committee. The committee provides a unique opportunity for business representatives to have a direct say in developing transportation policy for the region.

The TPC is charged with developing regional transportation policy positions for Regional Council consideration and provides oversight for the implementation of Proposition 400.

Weise served a one-year term as vice chairman as a prerequisite to his new designation as chairman.
