About the Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC)
This committee exists to encourage and promote the availability and choice of non-motorized transportation that will improve the health and safety of our citizens, the sustainability of our environment, and the economy of our region.
The BPAC's primary functions include:
• To advise and provide sound planning recommendations to the Metropolitan Interstate Council in regard to bicycle and pedestrian related plans and projects.
• To engage local stakeholders, decision makers, engineers, planners, and transportation authorities who are involved with the physical development of the transportation system, in order to gather meaningful input on projects that have impacts on bicyclists and pedestrians.
• To provide a forum for the discussion of bicycle and pedestrian related issues and concerns.
• To provide public outreach and education regarding bicycle and pedestrian specific issues, activities and projects, as deemed appropriate by the Committee.
• To assist in identifying methods and providing assistance with data gathering and implementation of plans and projects.
• To assist in identifying additional sources of funding for coordination and implementation of special projects and activities, as deemed appropriate by the Committee.
|The BPAC meets quarterly, on the first Mondays of February, May, August and November from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. In 2014, all meetings will be held in the ARDC Conference Room at 221 West First Street, Duluth, MN.|
