Oregon Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee Meeting
December 11, 2019 at 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
The Oregon Bicycle Committee was first formed by the Oregon Legislature in 1973 (Oregon Statute 366.112). In 1995, the Oregon Transportation Commission officially recognized the committee’s additional role in pedestrian issues, and the group became the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
The Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, or OBPAC, is an eight-member committee appointed by the governor that acts as a liaison between the public and Oregon Department of Transportation. It advises ODOT in the regulation of bicycle and pedestrian traffic, the establishment of bikeways and walkways, and other statewide bicycle and pedestrian issues. The committee meets six times a year in various locations around the state to support implementation of the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and listen to the views and concerns of interested citizens, local officials and ODOT staff.
The Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee will meet from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., Dec. 11 at ODOT’s Matthew L. Garrett Building, 123 NW Flanders in Portland. Agenda items include a discussion on the crosswalk closure policy update, review of and action on the new Multimodal Active Transportation Fund program, a discussion about the Safe Routes to School Infrastructure grants, and more.
