Transportation Aesthetics Review Committee
The Transportation Aesthetics Review Committee (TARC) is responsible for advising the TPO Governing Board on matters that pertain to high-visibility projects that could affect the outward appearance of the community.
The goal of TARC is to make transportation projects visually friendly to commuters and the community, as well as creating a sense of place. Pushing the standard parameters of materials, sites, and design excellence are just some of the objectives by which TARC achieves this goal.
In its review of transportation projects, the TARC considers the extent to which a project:
- Creates a sense of place
- Incorporates an artistic vision
- Includes a multi-disciplinary team
- Adds value to the community
Some of the projects reviewed by TARC are:
- PortMiami Tunnel
- Port of Miami Bridge Lighting
- Brownsville Transit Oriented Development
- Palmetto Metrorail Station
- SR-836 Toll Plaza at 17th Avenue
- Douglas Road Pedestrian Overpass

TARC is comprised of 23 private citizens who have been appointed by the TPO Governing Board, one per member.
The TARC was created in 1993 by the Miami-Dade TPO Governing Board as a permanent part of the TPO’s transportation planning process for the architectural and aesthetic review of major bridges and transportation projects.
