2003 Bicycle and Pedestrian
BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ADVISORY COMMITTEE (BPAC)
Provides guidance to elected officials and others who are making decisions that impact bicycle and pedestrians and an ongoing process for resident input.
Elected officials and staff have a responsibility to make transparent decisions. Too often, this is not the case.
- Funding choices made without public input
- Streets repaved without proper bicycle lanes; and
- Schools located far from walkable/bikeable neighborhoods
BPACs can provide a mechanism for needed accountability
and many benefits for residents
