The Tacoma City Manager is currently seeking three members and one youth member to serve on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Technical Advisory Group, each for a three-year term.
The group advises the Transportation Commission on active transportation-related matters, such as short-term and long-range bicycle and pedestrian priority projects, and compliance with local, regional and federal transportation regulations. In addition, the group provides expertise and makes recommendations on the implementation of the Transportation Master Plan including wayfinding, design, connectivity and encouragement for active transportation. The group will also provide guidance on the reprioritization of bicycle and pedestrian projects as new networks are implemented.
The group consists of 11 members, who are Tacoma residents, bringing a range of perspectives and expertise that focus on the city’s long-term vision for bicycle and pedestrian enhancements throughout the city. It is recommended that the members appointed reflect the following categories of special interest/discipline: pedestrian and bicycle sector, youth sector, health sector, metro parks and ADA community.
Regularly scheduled meetings are on the fourth Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at the Tacoma Municipal Building (747 Market St., Room 243). To find out additional information on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Technical Advisory Group, please visit their website.
