Springfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee

The City is accepting applications for two voting member positions on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC). The Committee advises City of Springfield staff and partner agencies on bicycle and pedestrian policies, programs, and facilities. The Committee meets approximately six times each year during even numbered months, with subcommittee meetings on the alternating months. Candidates will be appointed to serve a three-year term beginning in March 2023.

Applicants should have an interest in promoting walking, biking, and other forms of active transportation in Springfield. The City would like to have diverse representation on the committee, including but not limited to youth, seniors, people of different races and ethnicities, people with mobility, hearing, sight, or cognitive disabilities, and mountain, BMX, and electric assist bicycle riders.
