Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC)
About the Committee
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) is comprised of local residents, planners, advocacy group representatives, and government staff. Its purpose is to connect with the public and to advise the FAMPO Policy Committee and FAMPO staff on issues related to active transportation, such as walking, biking, and using a wheelchair, as well as skateboarding, e-scooters, hoverboards, and other forms of micro-mobility.
The meetings listed below are open to the public. There is a time designated for public comment and public participation is encouraged.
