“The ideal director will take a high-level approach to transportation planning, with a deep passion for and understanding of how transportation impacts communities— uniting or dividing neighborhoods, growing or shrinking wealth inequity, and increasing or limiting access to vital services,” according to the City’s website. 

“With significant Capital Improvements upcoming, the City is seeking a Director with experience in finance, particularly in the areas of budget creation and oversight, grant funding, and cost reduction. The ideal Director will be a technically skilled administrator with exceptional interpersonal skills, who is enthusiastic about collaborating with constituents, special interest groups, and City Council to strategize innovative solutions to safety and transportation concerns.”

“Community input is incredibly valuable in appointing the best individual to lead the Department. I encourage all members of the community to attend the upcoming forum and share their thoughts on the characteristics and professional background they feel would be most important in the new director,” states Márquez.

The department’s most recent priorities include the Complete Streets Program; providing and enhancing safe, reliable, seamless, and exemplary local transit services, including Dial-A-Ride; enhancing the efficiencies of on- and off-street parking management; and enhancing organizational and operational effectiveness, efficiency, and communication with the community.
