Local Appointments List:

Current Board/Commission Openings:

    1 Traffic & Pedestrian Safety Committee (TAPS) - Open until filled

    The Pinole Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Committee is currently a 5 member panel of Pinole residents and/or business owners who recommend or review action on traffic safety, traffic control and planning, speed limits, parking and other traffic related matters.  The Committee makes recommendations to the City Council on traffic and pedestrian changes and matters referred for study. The Committee meets on the third Wednesday, at 7:00 p.m. every other month.

    Completed application and supplemental questionnaire are to be submitted to the City Clerk’s office, 2131 Pear Street, Pinole. A subcommittee of the City Council will conduct interviews and appointments will be made at a City Council meeting.


    1 Contra Costa Transportation Authoity - Citizens Advisory Committee - Open until filled

     A little over 25 years ago, voters in Contra Costa chose to tax themselves to pay for transportation improvements. The Contra Costa Transportation Authority is the agency that invests those sales tax dollars, nearly $70 million a year, into local transportation improvements.


    The Citizens Advisory Committee is charged with monitoring the Transportation Authority’s activities, and upholding a critical element of the sales tax measure – the county’s Growth Management Program. In order for the City of Pinole to receive its share of funding to maintain and improve local streets, we must complete a Growth Management Checklist and submit it to the Transportation Authority. That checklist MUST be approved by the Citizens Advisory Committee before it gets forwarded to the Transportation Authority Board and the funds are released to the City of Pinole. This position is vital in advocating for the City of Pinole.

    2 Contra Costa Library Commission - Delegate and Alternate - Open until filled

    The purpose of the Contra Costa Library Commission is to serve in an advisory capacity to the Board of Supervisors and the County Librarian, to provide community linkage to the County Library. To establish a forum for the community to express its views regarding the goals and operations of the County Library and to develop and recommend proposals to the Board of Supervisors and County Librarian for the betterment of the library, including efforts to ensure a stable and adequate funding level for services.
