- Bicycle transportation;
- Pedestrian transportation.
- Road networks that promote all modes of transportation; or
- Transportation demand management.
To be eligible for consideration, candidates must be a Howard County resident, qualify under one of the categories listed above and be able to attend the Board meetings, which are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Board meetings are currently being held virtually via WebEx; however, meetings may transition back to in-person in the near future.
Applicants should send a resume and brief letter explaining why they want to serve on the Board to Kimberly Pruim, either by email to [email protected] or by mail to: Howard County Government, Office of the County Executive, Attn: Kimberly Pruim, 3430 Court House Drive, Ellicott City, MD 21043.
