Want to help the city plan for bicycle traffic? There’s a committee for you.

The City of Portland’s Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) is seeking new members. The BAC has been advising city staff and elected officials on matters related to bicycling since the 1970s. Committee members meet monthly to review and make recommendations on: planning and policy documents affecting bicycling, funding priorities for bicycle-related projects and designs for specific bikeways.

The committee is made up of 13 members with full standing and up to seven alternate members. To qualify, applicants must be: an adult resident of the Portland Metropolitan area, have an interest in promoting the use of the bicycle for transportation and recreation and make a commitment to attend monthly meetings and participate in the work of the committee.

Members are appointed to 3-year terms.
