In addition to a broad community outreach and engagement process, a Project Advisory Committee will guide the development of the Portland Off-road Cycling Master Plan. The Advisory Committee will advise staff throughout the development of the Plan and will have the opportunity to submit a Committee report in the Plan’s transmittal to City Council.
The Committee will include 15 at-large community representatives, ideally including:
- Trail and park users.
- Portlanders with interests, skills, knowledge and expertise in off-road cycling, environmental stewardship, trail design or management, outdoor recreation, business, tourism and health.
- Members who might be able to contribute perspectives or experiences from historically under-represented or under-served communities, such as communities of color, Portlanders with limited-English proficiency, low-income residents, youth, and Portlanders with disabilities.
The City is particularly interested in members who can bring and consider multiple perspectives and who can think creatively about off-road cycling opportunities citywide.
The Committee will meet approximately monthly for up to one year. Translation, accommodations and childcare will be provided with advance notice.
A Statement of Interest must be submitted no later than Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at 5 p.m.
