We're seeking new members for the Pedestrian Advisory Committee. The PAC advises the City of Portland – 

particularly the Transportation Bureau – on matters that encourage and enhance walking as a means of transportation, recreation, wellness and environmental enhancement.

The PAC has from nine to 15 members who represent a cross-section of Portlanders, including walking and mobility advocates, neighborhood activists, environmental design professionals and citizens-at-large.

The PAC meets the third Tuesday each month in the evening at City Hall. Members are appointed to a 4-year term. PAC member activities include, but are not limited to, reviewing and making recommendations on:

  • planning documents affecting pedestrians,
  • pedestrian projects, 
  • projects with pedestrian facilities, 
  • funding priorities for pedestrian-related projects, 
  • activities of other jurisdictions that affect pedestrians in Portland, and
  • maintaining and periodically updating the Portland Pedestrian Design Guide and Pedestrian Master Plan.

Qualified individuals must:

  • be a resident of or own a business in the City of Portland, 
  • have an interest in promoting the use of walking for transportation and recreation, and 
  • commit to attending monthly meetings and participating in the work of the committee.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. Thursday, April 18, 2013.
