What is the Pedestrian Advisory Committee?

The PAC advises the City of Portland – particularly the Bureau of Transportation – on matters that encourage and enhance walking as a means of transportation, recreation, wellness and environmental enhancement. The PAC is a 9- to 15-person committee that represents 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 evening each month. 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
  • 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
  • commit to attend monthly meetings and participate in the work of the committee 

Current Members: Rebecca Hamilton (Co-Chair), Roger Averbeck (Co-Chair), Arlene Kimura, Anthony Buczek, Chase Ballew, David Crout, Eve Nilenders, Doug Klotz, Scott Kocher, Rod Merrick, Brenda Martin, Elaine O'Keefe, and Brian Landoe.
