ATP seeks community expert

Monday, July 18, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Austin Transit Partnership is currently looking to fill a vacancy on its board. Specifically, the board is looking for an expert in “community planning or sustainability” to help guide the Project Connect transit overhaul and to serve as board liaison to the Planning, Sustainability, Equity and DBE Advisory Committee (PSEC). According to the group’s bylaws, applicants should have:

  • At least 10 years of experience in urban planning, community planning, equitable transit-oriented development (ETOD), sustainability and/or environmental planning;
  • Experience with community engagement with preferably three to five years of specific experience; and
  • Community expert members of the ATP board must be a resident of Austin.

With that in mind, the nominating committee also considers diversity and “an applicant’s ability to consider wholly Project Connect’s benefits and potential impacts, particularly on vulnerable communities aimed to be served by transit” when evaluating those who do not meet the above criteria. More information about the position and the application process can be found here.
