  • A licensed architect, civil engineer or traffic engineer with demonstrated experience of ten years or more in the field of transportation and/or urban design in government or the private sector.

As outlined in the TransNet Ordinance and Expenditure Plan, the ITOC provides an increased level of accountability for expenditures of TransNet funds.

The ITOC functions in an independent, open, and transparent manner to ensure that all voter mandates are carried out, and develops positive, constructive recommendations for improvements and enhancements to the financial integrity and performance of the TransNet program.

ITOC membership is open to individuals from throughout the region, who possess a set of appropriate professional skills and experience. Individuals interested in applying for this ITOC position should contact SANDAG for an application at ariana.zurnieden@SANDAG.org.

Applications must be postmarked no later than Friday, March 22, 2019. SANDAG seeks to fill openings on the ITOC with a diverse group of persons who are representative of the community. SANDAG highly encourages applications from persons of all races and economic backgrounds. The newly selected member is anticipated to begin serving at the regularly scheduled ITOC meeting in June 2019.
