Sorensen, Lema and Denton appointed to Queen Creek transportation committee

The Queen Creek Town Council on March 2 appointed Tyler Sorensen, Stephanie Lema and Susan Denton to the town of Queen Creek Transportation Advisory Committee. While appointments are two year terms, Mr. Sorensen and Ms. Lema are replacing vacant seats with a term that expires on Aug. 31, 2016, and Ms. Denton is replacing a vacant seat that expires Aug. 31, 2017.

Mr. Sorensen is an attorney who is interested in getting more involved with the community and lending his experience to help guide the town, according to a press release. Ms. Lema is a graduate of the town’s Citizen Leadership Institute and is interested in contributing her time and experience to the town. Ms. Denton also is a CLI graduate and a previous Queen Creek Planning and Zoning Commission member.

“The town council and I appreciate our residents serving on our commission and boards,” Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney said in the release. “It is important to have representatives from the community helping to guide the future growth of the town.”

The purpose of the TAC is to review the town’s transportation planning efforts (including the Capital Improvement Program) and to serve as ambassadors to residents on all things related to transportation.

TAC meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second Thursday every three three months (February, May, August and November) in the Municipal Services Building-San Tan Conference Room at 22350 S. Ellsworth Road to discuss transportation-related projects and programs, and makes recommendations to the town council on those matters.

Queen Creek residents who are interested in serving on a board or commission can complete a notice of interest form online. Forms remain on file for 12 months.
