Mayor Nutter’s Office of Transportation and Utilities has hired Charles Carmalt for the position of Pedestrian and Bicycle Coordinator. Thank you Mayor Nutter for fulfilling this campaign promise and filling this position!
Carmalt joined the Office with 35 years of transportation planning experience. His career included both private and public sector work. For the last nine years, he ran his own consulting firm where his projects placed special emphasis on the needs of pedestrians and bicyclists. As a volunteer he has been an active member of the NJ Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Council and as the Lawrence Township representative for the Mercer County Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force.
His role at the City will be to coordinate all activities that impact the quality of the urban environment for pedestrians and bicyclists. His responsibilities will range from assisting on the Planning Commission’s forthcoming Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan to helping build relationships with outside agencies like the Philadelphia Parking Authority in order to expand and improve our bicycle parking options.
The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia heartily welcomes Charles to this new position and we look forward to working with Charles to make Philadelphia a more bicycle-friendly city.
