The City of Newport is seeking applications from citizens interested in serving on the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee which is charged for looking out for those who would rather pedal manually than just push on one.
The Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee meets monthly on the second Tuesday, at 5:30 P.M., at City Hall, 169 SW Coast Highway. The purpose of the Committee is to advise the City Council on issues relating to bicycle and pedestrian transportation, safety, recreation, and education. The Committee also acts as a resource to provide additional information related to the unique problems associated with non-motorized transportation.
Anyone interested in serving on this committee should apply using the city’s committee application. And you don’t even have to go down to city hall. An application is found on the city website at www.newportoregon.gov; click on “City;” then on “Committees;” and then on “Application for Committee/Commission.” The completed form can be submitted electronically. Paper copies of the committee application form can also be obtained by contacting Peggy Hawker, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at 541.574.0613. The application deadline is June 15, 2017.
It is anticipated that the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee will interview interested volunteers at its meeting of July 11th, and forward a recommendation to the City Council for formal appointment.
