The City Council is seeking candidates for a vacancy on Bellevue’s Transportation Commission. Interested residents can apply online. Applications are due by Friday, Feb. 10.
Made up of volunteers and appointed by the mayor with City Council concurrence, board and commission members serve four-year terms, offering their time and expertise to help shape Bellevue’s future. Bellevue’s boards and commissions advise the council and conduct regularly scheduled public meetings.
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 prioritization of projects in the Capital Investment Program and Transportation Improvement Program plans.
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.
People who do not want to apply online can pick up community service applications from the City Clerk’s Office or Service First at City Hall, as well as the Bellevue Regional Library, the Lake Hills Library or Mini City Hall.
