Commercial Parking Control Committee Members Vacancy
Pursuant to City Ordinance 10.16, the Commercial Parking Control Committee (CPCC) reviews applications and decides whether to issue Commercial Parking Permits. The Committee also decides if spaces have improperly or illegally been operated as Commercial Parking spaces. Commercial Parking Space means parking space available for use by the general public at any time for a fee. Committee members are appointed by the City Manager for staggered terms of three years. No person shall be appointed to the Committee who has a financial interest in commercial parking in Cambridge.

Meetings will be held as needed on weekday evenings, generally no more than twice per year, unless a Commercial Parking permit application or enforcement action is pending. Hearings will be staffed by the Cambridge Traffic, Parking and Transportation Department.

Committee members must be a Cambridge resident and have experience that may include a background as a planner, architect, engineer, lawyer, sustainability, public health; neighborhood involvement is also a plus.
