Citizen advisory councils need you

Tuesday, August 16, 2022 by Tai Moses

Feeling civically inclined? If so, you’re in luck: Two of Austin’s citizen-directed councils are accepting applications for new members. The Pedestrian Advisory Council and the Bicycle Advisory Council advise the city “on planning, policy, design, funding, education and enforcement efforts regarding the creation, maintenance and operation” of pedestrian and bicycle facilities. The PAC has eight vacancies (four full-member positions and four alternate positions) and the PAC has six openings (three full-member positions and three alternates). Both councils meet monthly and a typical agenda consists of “briefings, discussion/approval of recommendations to local agencies, and community announcements.” Maybe you have some fresh ideas on issues pertaining to bicycles and pedestrians? Find more details and apply for the BAC here and the PAC here.
