Our Vision Statement:
We strive to transform our modes of daily travel by developing and providing safe, convenient, and accessible bicycle & pedestrian access for all ages which seamlessly integrates into our town’s transportation infrastructure.
Our Mission Statement:
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission will promote walking and biking as part of a multi-modal transportation system and provide leadership and expertise to the Town Council and Town Staff. We will advance the best practices in planning and design. The BPAC will influence and collaborate with subject matter experts on transportation policy and funding opportunities.
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission holds its regular meetings at 3:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of even numbered months, with adjustments to the frequency as required to meet the necessary obligations of the Town and the Commission.
