The Transportation Commission reviews requests for changes in traffic regulations and formulates and recommends traffic-related policies and ordinances to the Council. The commission sponsors two subcommittees: the Bicycle Advisory Committee and the Pedestrian Advisory Committee, each consisting of seven voting members.

There are currently three seats which are expired and one seat that is vacant due to a resignation. It is important to fill vacancies on boards and commissions quickly so as to allow them to continue meeting on a regular basis. There are seven applications on file. 

The applications on file are as follows:
  • Justin Dinardi - FUSD Representative (new applicant)
  • Matthew Eckhoff (new applicant)
  • Robert Kuhn (new applicant)
  • Erika Mazza (previously served as NAIPTA representative)
  • Kate Morley - NAIPTA Representative (current commissioner)
  • James Newberry (new applicant)
  • Kelly Regan (new applicant)
In an effort to reduce exposure to personal information the applicant roster and applications will be submitted to the City Council separately.
