The City Council is seeking candidates for a vacancy on Bellevue’s Transportation Commission. Interested residents can apply online. Applications are due by Thursday, March 11.
The Transportation Commission advises the 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 council. Commissioners review and make recommendations to the council on topics such as the Transportation Facilities Plan, changes to the Traffic Standard Code, long- and short-range funding, and Capital Investment Program and Transportation Improvement Program project prioritization.
The commission meets the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. An additional monthly meeting may be needed if workload warrants, in which case it will be held on the fourth Thursday of the month.
Applicants must be residents of Bellevue. The City of Bellevue values diversity and encourages anyone interested to apply.
Made up of volunteers and appointed by the mayor with City Council concurrence, board and commission members serve four-year terms. The appointee in this case will fill the unexpired term of a commissioner who resigned, so their term will expire in May 2024. They would then be eligible for reappointment.
People interested in applying may do so online. In addition to online submission, applications may be submitted by either of the options below:
Mailing Address: P.O. Box 90012, Bellevue, WA 98009-9012
