The City Administrator has suspended all non-essential regular City Committee/Commission meetings beginning March 12, 2020, as a precautionary and preventive measure for COVID-19. Non-essential meetings are defined as anything not having a state or federal timeline for funding. As a result, most Commissions will not be meeting until further notice. The goal is to keep City employees healthy so that they can continue providing essential functions to our citizens.
Staff is currently working on the technical details of facilitating electronic meetings for the City Council and Planning Commission and that is the priority. Once that is worked out staff will turn efforts to helping facilitate regular Commission and Committee meetings as needed.
Ashland Municipal Code Chapter 2.13 Transportation Commission
Established by Ordinance 2975 (November 2008)
AMC 2.13.010 - Established - Generally
Role - The Transportation Commission advises the City Council on transportation related issues specifically as they relate to safety, planning, funding and advocacy for bicycles, transit, parking, pedestrian and all other modes of transportation.
Mission - The need for a Transportation Commission is emphasized in the Transportation Element:
"Ashland has a vision - to retain our small-town character even while we grow. To achieve this vision, we must proactively plan for a transportation system that is integrated into the community and enhances Ashland's livability, character and natural environment...The focus must be on people being able to move easily through the city in all modes of travel, Modal equity then is more than just a phase. It is a planning concept that does not necessarily imply equal financial commitment or equal percentage use of each mode, but rather ensures that we will have the opportunity to conveniently and safely use the transportation mode of our choice, and allow us to move toward a less auto-dependent community."
Please remember that other than staff, the people listed below are volunteers working on behalf of our community and should only be contacted on matters related to their particular commission, committee or board.
