City Council Seeks Applicants for Transportation Commission

 

The Tacoma City Council is looking to fill one at-large position on the Transportation Commission to serve a three-year term.

 

The Transportation Commission will advise Council on transportation-related matters, such as short-term and long-range transportation planning, compliance with local, regional and federal transportation regulations, bike, pedestrian and mass transit-related planning initiatives, and parking and capital improvement plans. Commission members are recommended by the Infrastructure, Planning, and Sustainability Committee and appointed by the City Council.

 

The commission consists of 11 members - nine voting members appointed by the City Council, with representatives from each of the City’s five Council Districts, who bring a range of perspectives and expertise that focus on the City’s long-term vision for mobility options throughout the City, and two non-voting members appointed by the City Manager. It is recommended that the members appointed reflect the following categories of special interest/discipline: professional engineering sector, construction/private business sector, bike and pedestrian/mass transit sector, planning/urban growth sector, environmental/sustainability sector, general community and ADA community. All members must be residents of the city of Tacoma.

 

Commission meetings occur the first and third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. To find out additional information on the Transportation Commission, visit their website.

 

Applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by Sunday, March 6, 2016. To apply, please visit cityoftacoma.org/cbcapplication or contact Amanda Punsalan in the City Clerk’s Office at (253) 591-5178 or Tacoma Municipal Building North, 733 Market St., Room 11, Tacoma, WA 98402.
