Julia Taylor was first appointed to fill an open City Council seat in November 2018 and was elected to a full term in November 2019. She has lived in Lambertville since 2006 and grew up just across the river in New Hope. 

Prior to serving on Council, Julia served on the Environmental Commission for nine years and was chairperson for two of those years. As part of the Environmental Commission, she was instrumental in organizing a citywide visioning process that resulted in conceptual plans for the park at the corner of Cherry and North Union Streets and in developing our Third Can Program. Julia was also a founding member of an environmental group called SEE Lambertville (standing for Society, Environment, Economy) that raised funds for and constructed the Lambertville Learning Garden at LPS, successfully encouraged area restaurants to offer more locally produced foods, and hosted several environmental education events.

A city planner by training, Julia is currently the Senior Director of Programs & Partnerships with the Trenton Health Team, where she fosters collaborative efforts at the intersection of community development and public health to ensure the long-term well-being and prosperity of Trenton's residents and neighborhoods. Prior to joining THT, for more than a decade Julia lead large-scale community development initiatives in Trenton as Managing Director of Community Planning & Development and Deputy Operations Officer at Isles, Inc. Julia earned a Master of City Planning degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Princeton University.
