The City of Newport is seeking applications from citizens interested in serving on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. The Committee meets monthly on the second Tuesday, at 5:30 P.M., at City Hall. The committee consists of seven members and all must be residents or business owners in the city.
The committee advises the city council on goals for the city’s bicycle and pedestrian plan and recommends innovative changes – like improvements to routes and pathways so walkers and bikers can conveniently and safely get around town. Also, safe places to secure their bicycles.
Anyone interested in serving on this committee can apply on line at www.NewportOregon.gov using the city’s committee application. Just click on “City;” then on “Committees;” and then on “Application for Committee/Commission.” The completed form can be submitted online. Copies of the form can also be obtained by contacting the City Manager’s Office at 169 SW Coast Highway, Newport, Oregon 97365, or by calling 541.574.0613.
The application deadline is November 1, 2019. The Pedestrian/Bicycle Committee will interview interested citizens at an upcoming meeting, and forward a recommendation to the City Council for formal appointment.
