Member sought for Multnomah County Bicycle and Pedestrian Citizen Advisory Committee

Multnomah County is seeking to fill at least one vacancy on its Bicycle and Pedestrian Citizen Advisory Committee with new members who live, work or recreate in Multnomah County. Preference will be given for applicants who live in the east county cities of Fairview, Troutdale, or Wood Village, or in the rural unincorporated areas of Multnomah County. New members will serve a two-year term beginning July 1, 2016.

The committee advises the county on bicycle and pedestrian issues related to the county’s road system, which includes:

  • Major collector and arterial roads in the cities of Fairview, Troutdale, and Wood Village
  • Roads in unincorporated areas of Multnomah County including the West Hills, Sauvie Island, 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 bicyclists, pedestrians and the disabled are encouraged to apply. The committee advises the county’s Transportation Division on matters that involve bicycle and pedestrian transportation, including project review and budget recommendations.

    The committee meets on the second Wednesday of every month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., typically at the Multnomah Building at 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd. in Portland. Members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners and serve a two-year term.

    To apply, individuals need to fill out and submit the application form no later than Wednesday, May 18, 2016.
