OCTA Board of Directors Seeks Applicants for Public Member

Date: February, 18 2021 Category: City Manager

Are you or someone you know interested in having a hand in Orange County transportation?

The Orange County Transportation Authority is looking for a candidate to represent the public on its 18-member Board of Directors. The City of Santa Ana encourages our residents to apply so that we have more local voices involved in transportation matters.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26, 2021.

The Orange County Transportation Authority is the county transportation planning commission, responsible for funding and implementing transit and capital projects for a balanced and sustainable transportation system that reflects the diverse travel needs of the county’s 34 cities and 3.2 million residents. With the mission of keeping Orange County moving, this includes freeways and express lanes, bus and rail transit, rideshare, commuter rail, environmental programs and active transportation.

OCTA is governed by an 18-member Board of Directors that sets policy for OCTA. Voting members include five members of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, 10 Orange County city members, and two Public Members. A non-voting member, representing the California Department of Transportation, also sits on the Board. OCTA is seeking applicants for one Public Member seat for a four-year term.
