FasTracks advisory committee renews membership invitation
(Oct 15, 2013)
The FasTracks Citizens Advisory Committee, which advises the Regional Transportation District on its transit expansion program, continues to search for new members and is accepting applications through Friday, Oct. 25.
Applicants who want to serve on the all-volunteer, 17-member CAC will be considered for positions expiring in December and for those opening in the next year.
Volunteers represent a wide variety of interests, backgrounds and professional experiences, and their public outreach meetings keep Denver-area citizens abreast of FasTracks progress and provide opportunities for input by local communities.
CAC members receive staff updates on FasTracks projects, budget and schedule matters, the small and disadvantaged business program and quality management guidelines. Committee members also provide region-oriented advice to RTD Board of Directors on FasTracks issues; review and provide comment on various FasTracks reports; and promote public awareness and understanding of the FasTracks program and its implementation.
The group meets quarterly around the eight-county RTD region and holds monthly work sessions as needed. Members serve a three-year term.
Appointments to the CAC shall be made to ensure a broad representation of stakeholder interests, to achieve diversity and to provide geographical representation within the district.
Selection criteria will include, but not be limited to, residency within the RTD region; a demonstrated interest in public transit and the FasTracks program; previous community service; experience working with local jurisdictions on regional issues; and professional expertise.
Individuals interested in applying for a position on the CAC should submit letters of interest to Dale.Honor@rtd-denver.com.
Letters must be received by the close of business on Friday, Oct. 25, and should include:
• a brief statement of interest in serving on the committee;
• specific qualifications for serving on the CAC;
• highlights of related experience and expertise; and
• a resume.
