ODOT seeking two volunteers for Safe Routes Advisory Committee

Posted by Jonathan Maus (Publisher/Editor) on March 28th, 2012 at 8:44 am

This just in from ODOT... They are looking to fill vacancies on their Safe Routes to School Advisory Committee:

The Oregon Department of Transportation is seeking people interested in filling two vacancies for the nine-member Safe Routes to School Advisory Committee. The two stakeholder positions available represent bicycle-based advocacy groups and local traffic safety committee or neighborhood association constituencies

The committee provides technical assistance to the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program, acts as a review committee for SRTS grants, serves as a communication channel between the SRTS Program and stakeholders and as an advocate for SRTS. Members serve on a volunteer basis. The committee meets at most four times a year, generally in Salem, with the option for members to join the meeting by teleconference or videoconference. The state reimburses members for travel expenses to attend committee meetings.

The ODOT Safe Routes to School Program is a statewide program assisting Oregon communities in identifying and reducing barriers and hazards to children, K-12, when walking or bicycling to or from school. The program may provide federal aid funding to schools K-8 for education and outreach, evaluation, and engineering and enforcement within two miles of the school, based on a statewide competitive application process.

The Safe Routes to School Program welcomes stakeholder participation from across the state -- from urban, suburban and rural communities. The application is posted on the website. (See http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/TS/saferoutes.shtml). Please submit completed application by mail, postmarked no later than April 16, 2012.
