Pedestrian Advisory Committee seeks new members

The Portland Bureau of Transportation announced that it is seeking new members for the Pedestrian Advisory Committee (PAC). The PAC advises the City of Portland – particularly the Bureau of Transportation – on matters that encourage and enhance walking as a means of transportation, recreation, wellness and environmental enhancement. The PAC is a 9- to 13-person committee that represents a cross-section of Portlanders, including walking and mobility advocates, neighborhood activists, environmental design professionals and citizens-at-large.

The PAC meets the third Tuesday evening each month. Members are appointed to a 4-year term. PAC member activities include, but are not limited to, reviewing and making recommendations on:

  • planning documents affecting pedestrians
  • pedestrian projects
  • projects with pedestrian facilities
  • funding priorities for pedestrian-related projects
  • activities of other jurisdictions that affect pedestrians in Portland
  • maintaining and periodically updating the Portland Pedestrian Design Guide and Pedestrian Master Plan

Qualified individuals must:

  • be a resident of or own a business in the City of Portland
  • have an interest in promoting the use of walking for transportation and recreation
  • commit to attend monthly meetings and participate in the work of the committee

The application is due by Monday, November 15. Please visit this link for the application.
