Carlsbad CA— The City of Carlsbad is seeking residents interested in filling a vacancy on the City of Carlsbad Traffic Safety Commission, a five member group that makes recommendations to the City Council on matters involving traffic safety, pedestrian safety, parking and school safety. The commission also provides a public forum to review community concerns and requests regarding traffic and pedestrian safety.
The commission’s five members are appointed by the mayor and confirmed by the City Council to serve four year terms. The current vacancy is to complete a term that expires in July 2016, due to a member being unable to fulfill her term.

Applicants must be Carlsbad residents and registered voters. Applications are available on the city’s website, www.carlsbadca.gov, or in the City Clerk’s Office located in City Hall at 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive. Applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by noon on Monday, Feb. 16.
