The Bellevue City Council is seeking candidates for a vacancy on the Transportation Commission. Whoever is appointed will serve a four-year term. At the conclusion of the term -- May 31, 2012 -- the new member will be eligible for reappointment for an additional four years.
The Transportation Commission advises the City Council on transportation-related issues. Members are responsible for studies, analyses and reports as required by the Traffic Standards Code or as requested by the City Council. Commissioners review and make recommendations to the Council on topics including:
- Transportation Facilities Plan (preparation, progress and implementation);
- Changes to the Traffic Standard Code or other regulations or programs regarding transportation management;
- Long- and short-range funding programs for transportation facilities;
- Short-term planning studies and implementation programs;
- Capital Investment Program and Transportation Improvement Program project prioritization;
- Bikeway/pedestrian implementation programs, long-range transportation planning, including participation with the Planning Commission in work on Comprehensive Plan updates and subarea transportation plans; and
- Other Council-directed activities.
The Transportation Commission meets on the second Thursday of each month, 6:30 p.m., City Hall Conference Room 1E-113, unless otherwise posted. An additional meeting will be on the fourth Thursday of the month if the commission's workload warrants.
Members of the boards and commissions (with the exception of the Environmental Services Commission) are Bellevue residents. Residents in newly annexed areas are particularly encouraged to apply. Bellevue values diversity.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
