News Blog: Join a PBOT Advisory Committee

We have received over 40 total applications for the Fixing our Streets Oversight Committee and the PBOT Bureau Advisory Committee. Given the important role both committees will play, it is critical that they reflect Portland's diversity. We are extending the deadline for committee applications until Wednesday, July 27th at 5 PM.

The Portland Bureau of Transportation invites you to consider two important PBOT advisory committee opportunities:

Bureau/Budget Advisory Committee | Application due July 27th

PBOT convenes a Bureau/Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) to inform the annual transportation budget and think critically and strategically about Portland’s complete transportation system. The BAC will also review program priorities and infrastructure project lists and provide input on Bureau strategy and direction for incorporating equity and the inclusion of communities that are traditionally under-served by the Bureau. The BAC meets monthly and is year round. Learn more.

Fixing Our Streets Oversight Committee | Application due July 27th

On May 17, 2016, Portland voters approved Measure 26-173, creating Portland’s first local funding source for transportation maintenance and safety via a 10 cent per gallon fuel tax. The Fixing Our Streets Program will implement Measure 26-173. The Oversight Committee will monitor overall program implementation, with special attention on construction impacts on businesses and neighborhoods and the utilization of minority-owned, women-owned, and emerging small businesses. The Oversight Committee will meet quarterly. Learn more.

Both of these advisory groups will play an important role in shaping the future of our work at PBOT and we will be working diligently to ensure that these spaces are both informative and meaningful for committee members. For each group we are seeking a diversity of perspectives and experience. Onboarding and supplemental information sessions will be offered to assist with facilitating full participation of committee members regardless of experience with PBOT or budget/policy process. Individuals can apply for both if there is interest. We do hope that you will consider applying and share these opportunities with your networks.
