Austin Ward, Broomfield City Council member, has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2023 Transportation and Infrastructure Services Committee for a one-year term. The Transportation and Infrastructure Services (TIS) Committee is responsible for leading NLC’s policy development and advocacy on transportation for communities of all sizes. The committee advocates for federal funding opportunities for cities and towns, improving safety and connectivity, and leveraging innovation for all types of transportation.
With the passage of historic bipartisan federal infrastructure programs, TIS is focused on the intergovernmental partnership needed to utilize direct competitive federal transportation programs, improve safety on our roads and sidewalks, and enhance the connectivity of regions with shared rail, transit and aviation options.
“Serving on the Transportation and Infrastructure Services Committee gives me the opportunity to influence how safety and connectivity funding is utilized and how that affects Broomfield’s transportation projects,” said Council Member Ward. “I am excited to be able to do this work on behalf of our residents.”
NLC’s Federal Advocacy Committee members include local elected officials and city staff from NLC member cities and towns across the country who are committed to discussing and influencing federal policy that has a direct and profound impact on local government operations.
