Brief Job Descritption (Essential Functions of the Job)
The City of Boston is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050. Transportation is the community’s second largest source of emissions, largely due to the use of gas-powered vehicles and commuters driving to Boston for work.
The parking freezes, administered by the Air Pollution Control Commission (APCC), were created under state and federal law to cap the amount of off-street commercial parking available in Boston’s core, and support the City’s transportation, carbon neutrality and clean air goals. On September 19, 2020, the APCC amended the freeze regulations to strengthen program administration.
The Air Quality Project Manager will work with the APCC and other City agencies, residents, businesses, and institutions to administer programs, identify obstacles and facilitate solutions leading to short-term and long-term air quality improvements, in support of the Mayor’s goals of carbon neutrality and a healthy environment. Candidates should have a passion for clean air and low-carbon mobility, an affinity with maps and spreadsheets, and bring energy and creativity to pollution reduction across Boston’s communities.
