Springfield BPAC notice


The City of Springfield is seeking applications from Springfield residents to fill five (5) vacant positions on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC). The Committee advises City of Springfield staff and City Council on bicycle and pedestrian policies, programs, and facilities. The full committee meets approximately six times each year on Tuesday evenings and candidates will be appointed to serve a three-year term beginning in January 2021.

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, people from all Springfield neighborhoods, and mountain and BMX bicycle riders.

For additional information, contact Emma Newman, Senior Transportation Planner at 541-726-4585 or enewman@springfield-or.gov.
