Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC)
About the Committee
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) is comprised of local residents, planners, advocacy group representatives, and government staff.

The meetings listed below are open to the public. There is a time designated for public comment and public participation is encouraged.
