The City of Newport is seeking applications from citizens interested in serving on the Pedestrian/Pedestrian Committee. The Pedestrian/Bicycle Committee meets monthly on the second Tuesday, at 5:30 P.M., at the Recreation Center, 225 SE Avery Street. 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 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. Copies of the committee application 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 December 30, 2011.
The Pedestrian/Bicycle Committee will interview interested volunteers at its January 10, 2012 meeting, and forward a recommendation to the City Council for formal appointment at its January 17, 2012 meeting.
