Responsibilities


The Planning Division provides staff support to the Transportation Safety Commission (TSC), an advisory group of citizen volunteers working with County officials and representatives of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Virginia Highway Safety Office, the National Park Service, and other agencies to improve the safety of the County's transportation network.

As a citizen advisory body to the Board of Supervisors, the TSC serves as a conduit between County citizens and the Board on matters relating to transportation safety. In that role, the Commission is occasionally asked to review transportation safety concerns that are brought to the attention of the County or VDOT by citizens. The purpose of this vetting process is to determine if further study and/or action by the Board or VDOT is warranted. Do you have a transportation safety concern you would like the Commission to investigate? To submit questions to the TSC Email the Planning Commission.
