Chatham County Commissioners approve Transportation Advisory Board

Posted by on Fri, Feb 12, 2010 at 1:19 PM

More than 60 percent of Chatham County residents work outside of the county; transportation is a crucial aspect to a quality of life in the rural county.

In that spirit, on Feb. 1, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners approved a new Transportation Advisory Board  and is seeking applicants to serve on the volunteer board.

The board will have 11 voting members representing the county's five commissioner districts; each member will serve four-year terms.

The board will be comprised of at least one member having knowledge of the following transportation groups:

  • Non-motorized transportation, such as bicycling and walking

  • Public transportation, such as transit systems

  • Personal motor vehicles, such as cars and motorcycles

  • Large, slow-moving or commercial vehicles, including agricultural and commercial product transport

  • Transportation & the economy

  • Transportation & the environment

  • Transportation & society (community)

  • Transportation & public safety

“This is a critical issue for Chatham County because we have so many residents who commute long distances to work or school and who live in remote areas with few transportation options,” says Sally Kost chairwoman of the Chatham County Board of Commissioners, in a press release.

The board's stated purpose is to identify and study issues regarding transportation and related issues. Long-term goals include creating a sustainable transportation system that offers access other modes of transportation.

Interested residents can apply online: http://www.chathamnc.org/Index.aspx?page=1323, until March 26, 2010 at 5 p.m. The board of commissioners will review applications and make appointments in April.
