Contra Costa Transportation Authority - Citizens Advisory Committee - Open until filled
A little over 25 years ago, voters in Contra Costa chose to tax themselves to pay for transportation improvements. The Contra Costa Transportation Authority is the agency that invests those sales tax dollars, nearly $70 million a year, into local transportation improvements.
The Citizens Advisory Committee is charged with monitoring the Transportation Authority’s activities, and upholding a critical element of the sales tax measure – the county’s Growth Management Program. In order for the City of Pinole to receive its share of funding to maintain and improve local streets, we must complete a Growth Management Checklist and submit it to the Transportation Authority. That checklist MUST be approved by the Citizens Advisory Committee before it gets forwarded to the Transportation Authority Board and the funds are released to the City of Pinole. This position is vital in advocating for the City of Pinole.
