Want to get involved? Apply to serve on MPO’s Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinating Committee
Based on the recommendations in the MPO’s countywide Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan adopted in May, the Bicycle Pedestrian Coordination Committee (BPCC)’s bylaws were amended (adopted by the MPO Board on August 19th), to expand the membership and broaden the mandate of this committee. This committee is now responsible for leading the implementation of the Master Plan, meets monthly, and reports directly to the MPO Board at each MPO monthly meeting, putting it on par with the other two major advisory committees.
Along with the addition of representatives from health, law enforcement, and tourism, there are four new seats for citizens. This is an opportunity to play an important role in making Lee County more bike/ped-friendly and ensuring that the comprehensive master plan becomes reality on the ground. We’d love to see representatives from the various jurisdictions in the county, and to see a representative who’s passionate about pedestrian issues.
I encourage you to take a look at the bylaws, and consider submitting an application (which is found on p. 10 of this attachment). If you’re interested, fill out the form & email it to Meghan Marion at email@example.com.
If you’re interested in seeing who else is on the committee, check out the roster.
If you’d like to find out more about the assignment, contact Dan Moser, who chairs the BPCC. He can be reached on: 239-334-6417 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
