On April 12, 2012 the Pasco County Metropolitan Planning Organization approved the formation of the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee (“BPAC”) and on September 25, 2012 the Committee was formally established. Members of the BPAC are presented to the MPO Board for review.
The purpose of the BPAC is to make recommendations to the MPO on matters concerning bicycle and pedestrian issues as well as to promote safety, security, education, and enforcement of laws pertaining to both cyclists and pedestrians. The BPAC also assists the MPO in the development of comprehensive bikeways and pedestrian plans and projects for Pasco County as well as propose policies for the development of bikeway and pedestrian system considerations.
The BPAC is composed of volunteer members of the community who have technical, professional, or personal interests in the provision of safe, non-motorized transportation. Both public and private interests are represented. There is no set number of members for the BPAC. Alternate representatives may be designated to act on behalf of regular members; however, an alternate must be recommended for appointment by a regular member.
Voting members serve two (2) year staggered terms and expire on the first meeting of the year (January) following their two year term. Members may be re-elected to new terms.
The BPAC meets regularly on dates scheduled by the Chairman or Vice-Chairman at locations determined by the BPAC. Meetings generally commence at 5:45 pm.
