Members sought for county bicycle and pedestrian committee
Monday, 6/11/12 – 2:19 pm

Multnomah County is seeking members to serve on its Bicycle and Pedestrian Citizen Advisory Committee who live, work or recreate in east Multnomah County or in unincorporated areas. The committee advises the county on bicycle and pedestrian issues related to the county’s road system, which includes:

  • Major roads in the cities of Fairview, Troutdale, and Wood Village
  • Roads and bridges in unincorporated areas of Multnomah County including the west hills, Sauvie Island, the Columbia River Gorge, and areas east and west of the Sandy River
  • Five Willamette River bridges in the City of Portland (Broadway, Burnside, Hawthorne, Morrison, and Sellwood)

Individuals who are interested in transportation issues affecting pedestrians and bicyclists are encouraged to apply. The committee advises the county’s Transportation and Land Use Division on matters involving walking, biking, and access to transit, including project review and recommending priorities.

The committee meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Multnomah Building, 501 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd. in Portland. Members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners and serve a two-year term.

To apply, individuals need to complete an interest form, available online at www.multco.us/bikeped. To request a form or more information, contact Kate McQuillan at 503-988-5050, Extension 29397 or katherine.mcquillan [at] multco.us.
