The City of Tacoma Transportation Commission is looking for informed residents to advise it on bicycle and pedestrian matters.

A Bicycle and Pedestrian Technical Advisory Group (BPTAG) will advise the newly created Transportation Commission on active transportation issues, such as bicycle and pedestrian planning. Meetings will be held 5 to 7 p.m. the third Monday of each month.

The City Manager will appoint 11 City residents living throughout each of the City’s five Council Districts to BPTAG to ensure a range of perspectives and expertise. Residents with knowledge or first-hand experience about pedestrian, bicycle, health, parks and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) issues are particularly encouraged to apply. In addition, the City is seeking a youth representative, between the ages of 16 and 18, to serve as part of the group.

Applications should be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by Friday, June 28, 2013. To apply, please click here or contact April Larsen at (253) 591-5167, City Clerk’s Office, Room 220, Municipal Building, 747 Market St., Tacoma, WA 98402.
