The City of Tacoma’s Environmental Services department is looking for informed residents to help the City as it moves forward on bicycle and pedestrian issues by serving on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Technical Advisory Group.

This advisory group was formed in 2013 to help direct the Transportation Commission on active transportation issues, such as bicycle and pedestrian planning,transportation regulation compliance, project prioritization, and implementing the City’s Mobility Master Plan including wayfinding, project design,connectivity and citizen education and encouragement. Meetings are held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. every third Monday at the Tacoma Municipal Building (747 Market St.).

Residents with knowledge or first-hand experience about pedestrian, bicycle, health, parks and Americans with Disabilities Act issues are particularly encouraged to apply. In addition, the City of Tacoma is seeking a youth representative, between ages 16 and 18, to serve as part of the group.
