Board of Directors’ Meetings & Agendas
Guidance for Public Access to the Board of Directors and Standing Committee Meetings During Proclaimed State of Emergency
As a result of COVID-19, the Transportation Corridor Agencies headquarters located at 125 Pacifica, Irvine, California, are closed to the public. With respect to Board of Directors and Standing Committee Meetings, Assembly Bill (AB) 361 (Chapter 165, Statutes of 2021) was approved by the Legislature and signed by Governor Newsom on September 16, 2021. This legislation makes changes to the Ralph M. Brown Act to allow local legislative bodies to meet by teleconference during declared states of emergency without complying with the requirements in paragraph (3), of subdivision (b), in section 54953 of the Brown Act. Under this legislation, if a legislative body wishes to conduct meetings virtually, it must make certain findings by resolution to meet by teleconference and provide for remote public access and participation. The Boards of Directors have adopted the necessary findings, thereby authorizing the Boards and their Standing Committees to meet by teleconference. The Boards of Directors also adopted the "Temporary Public Meeting Policy During Proclaimed State of Emergency." Unless otherwise indicated in a public meeting notice, it is anticipated that this policy will apply to all Board of Directors Meetings and Standing Committee Meetings that are held via teleconference pursuant to AB 361.
The San Joaquin Hills and Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agencies Board Meetings are generally held concurrently as one joint meeting. Unless otherwise noted in the Board resolutions establishing the time and place of regular meetings of the Board, regular Board Meetings take place on the second Thursday of the month starting at 9:30 a.m. For purposes of ensuring the safety of the public, members of the public may not attend Board and Standing Committee Meetings in person. Members of the public may, however, visit our Meetings & Agendas page to view live broadcasts of Board and Standing Committee Meetings.
Written Public Comments
A public comment may be submitted for a Board or Standing Committee Meeting by emailing the comment to firstname.lastname@example.org. All comments submitted will be part of the public record. All comments should specify the date and title of the meeting for which the comment is being submitted. If the comment does not specify a date and title, it will be assumed that the comment is being submitted for the next meeting that is on the calendar, whether it be a Board of Directors Meeting or Standing Committee Meeting. Comments submitted no later than two hours before the start of a meeting will be provided to all applicable Board Members before the meeting.
Live Public Comments
Alternatively, live public comments may be delivered via dial-in through the WebEx third-party platform. For login information, see the "Live Public Comments" section of the meeting’s agenda. To access meeting agendas, click the meeting below and, then, select the "Agenda" tab at the top of the page.
It is recommended that the public join the meeting 15 minutes before the meeting start time. Once connected from the virtual lobby to the live public meeting, the person making the comment will be asked to state their name and make their comment. If the person wishes to comment before a specific agenda item, they will be returned to the virtual lobby until that agenda item is before the Board. Live public comments shall be limited to three (3) minutes per person unless the Chair, subject to the approval of the Board of Directors, sets different time limits.
Any person with a disability who requires a modification or accommodation in order to participate in a TCA public meeting should contact TCA's Clerk of the Board as soon as possible, and preferably no less than two business days prior to the meeting to enable TCA to make reasonable arrangements to assure accessibility.
