MTC accepting applications for new Advisory Council

Like dissecting regional infrastructure projects? Know the background on Transit Oriented Development? Have a hankering to solve the Bay Area’s budget woes?

Well, you might be the perfect — and perfectly rare — candidate for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s new 27-person Policy Advisory Council that will begin meeting next April.

The MTC, the region’s lead planning agency for transit and infrastructure projects, is accepting applications for its newest advisory body, which will focus on transportation issues dealing with the environment, the economy, and social equality.

The Policy Advisory Council will be comprised equally of nine members representing environmental issues, nine representing economy issues, and nine representing social equality issues. The council will advise the MTC on various transportation policies in the Bay Area.

Any interested resident from the nine-county Bay Area should apply online at the MTC’s website. The deadline is February 1, 2010.
