About the Portland Pedestrian Advisory Committee

The PAC is a 15-person committee that advises the City on all matters that encourage and enhance walking as a means of transportation, recreation, wellness, and environmental enhancement, and generally works to make Portland a better city for pedestrians. The committee is comprised of a cross-section of Portlanders, including walking and mobility advocates, neighborhood activists, urban planning professionals, and residents at-large. We advocate on transportation issues that affect pedestrians and the pedestrian environment by:

  • Reviewing and making recommendations on Capital Improvement Projects developed within the City boundaries by governmental agencies to ensure that pedestrian needs and pedestrian facilities are given full attention
  • Providing staff with comment and recommendations relating to urban design and planning issues including transportation needs and other elements of the public realm and the pedestrian environment
  • Reviewing and making recommendations on planning documents prepared by City bureaus affecting pedestrians and pedestrian facilities
  • Reviewing and making recommendations regarding funding priorities for Capital Improvement Projects and other activities insofar as they relate to Pedestrians
  • Advising Bureau of Transportation staff on issues related to public involvement
  • Advising City staff on issues related to promoting pedestrian safety and education
  • Promoting walking as the most environmentally friendly form of transportation, and for health and recreation
  • Monitoring implementation of PedPDX, Portland’s Citywide Pedestrian Master Plan (currently in progress)

PAC members are appointed by the Commissioner in charge of Transportation, and serve four-year terms.
