About the Committee

The town’s Traffic Advisory Committee (TAC) is comprised of representatives from the Engineering Department, Department of Public Works (DPW), Police Department, Fire Department, and the town planner. TAC issues advisory opinions to the Winchester Board of Selectmen on all citizen requests pertaining to traffic matters, such as the installation of stop signs and crosswalks. Following receipt of TACs recommendation, the Selectmen, in their capacity as the town’s traffic commissioners, hold a public hearing and vote on the citizen request.
