BPAC applications now open

The City of Concord is now accepting applications from residents who would like to serve on the City’s first permanent Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC). The deadline to apply is Friday, Feb 17 at 5pm.

The BPAC will review the City’s transportation capital improvement projects (CIPs) and advise staff on how projects could better serve bicycle and pedestrian traffic. There will be a lot to comment on. Initial CIP designs have so far tended to put a lower priority on the safety of non-motor traffic than on the expeditious movement of motor traffic, in spite of the City’s explicit policy commitment to the contrary.

    • Yes, Concord residents only. Staff’s recommendation to City Council was that three members be Concord residents and two be people who work in Concord but do not necessarily live here. Vice-Mayor Edi Birsan wanted to make it Concord residents only, and the other three Councilmembers were amenable to that, so that was the final decision.

  1. Any more details than what is provided? I’m interested but worried I may not have time to attend meetings and be as active as I want to be. Seeing as this is the first committee, I don’t think many people will know the workload.
