Please apply: Safe Roadways Committee, Arts and Humanities, Emergency Preparedness

The city council expects to appoint members to the city’s Safe Roadways Committee (SRC) in early October. We have 7 applicants for up to 11 slots, so we’d welcome additional applicants.

The SRC task is “to advise the City Council on transportation-related issues including, but not limited to, pedestrian and bicycle facilities and safety, traffic issues, and transit services” and “to encourage Takoma Park residents to use alternatives to driving, including walking, bicycling, and transit.” Committee members will decide meeting frequency with a minimum of quarterly meetings.

To apply, use the form at

You’ll see that there are openings on other committees. I’ll call out in particular the Arts and Humanities Commission, which “promotes, coordinates and strengthens public programs to further cultural development,” and the Emergency Preparedness Committee.

Please consider applying. Let me know if you have questions or send them to City Clerk Jessie Carpenter <>.
