The City of Newport is seeking applications from citizens interested in serving on the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
The Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee meets monthly on the second Tuesday, at 5:30 P.M., at City Hall, 169 SW Coast Highway.
The Committee advises the Newport 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 which 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 December 29, 2017. It is anticipated that the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee will interview interested volunteers at its meeting of January 9, 2018, and forward a recommendation to the City Council for formal appointment.
