MTC Still Has Two Openings on its Policy Advisory Council
Updated July 2015
The Policy Advisory Council advises MTC on a range of dynamic topics including regional planning efforts linking transportation, housing and land use plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; public transit service productivity improvements; cost-effectiveness measures for the region’s transportation system; and strategies to secure new revenues for transportation in the Bay Area, among other issues.
Recruitment will remain open until the positions are filled. Once potential candidates have been identified, their application will be forwarded to the appointing MTC Commissioners who will recommend individuals at the next MTC Legislation Committee meeting. If in agreement, the Legislation Committee will forward the recommendation to the full MTC Commission for approval at its next meeting.
Applicants must be willing to serve the remainder of a four-year term, which began in September 2013 and will be completed in July 2017. Council meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month in the afternoon at MTC's offices in Oakland. All meetings are audio cast on the MTC web site and are open to the public.
