Somerville Seeking Residents to Fill Traffic Commission and Traffic Board Vacancies
The City of Somerville is seeking two community members to fill vacant seats – one on the City’s Traffic Commission and the other on the City’s Traffic Board.
The Traffic Commission meets every third Thursday of the month to discuss and vote on a variety of traffic regulations such as parking restrictions, neighbor ways, traffic calming, and many more. In addition to the resident member, the commission is made up of designees from the Board of Aldermen, Somerville Police and Fire Departments, and City staff. Traffic Commission terms do not expire.
The Traffic Board only meets if a vote of the Traffic Commission is contested via petition. Traffic Board members will be appointed for a three-year term.
Applicants should have a working knowledge of the City of Somerville and an interest in traffic and parking matters. Additionally, candidates will need to have access to a computer and internet for email correspondence.

Interested applicants should submit a resume and cover letter to the Department of Traffic and Parking by Thursday, February 9, at 5 p.m., by emailing Suzanne Rinfret ([email protected]). Applicants may also contact Suzanne with any questions.
