The Tacoma City Council is looking to fill four positions on the Transportation Commission; one at-large position; District Nos. 1 and 2 positions, each to serve a three-year term; and one unexpired term in District No. 5.
The Transportation Commission advises the City 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.
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.
Commission meetings occur the third Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. To find out additional information on the Transportation Commission, visit their website. All members must be Tacoma residents.
