Multnomah County is looking to fill three open positions on its Bicycle and Pedestrian Citizen Advisory Committee with people who live, work or recreate in Multnomah County. Preference will be given for applicants who live in east county or rural unincorporated areas. New members will serve a two-year term beginning July 1, 2015.

The committee advises the county on bicycle and pedestrian issues related to the county’s road system, which includes:

  • Major collector and arterial roads in the cities of Fairview, Troutdale, and Wood Village
  • Roads in unincorporated areas of Multnomah County including the West Hills, Sauvie Island, and areas east and west of the Sandy River
  • Five Willamette River bridges in the City of Portland (Broadway, Burnside, Hawthorne, Morrison and Sellwood)

 

The county encourages persons who are interested in transportation issues affecting bicyclists, pedestrians and the disabled to apply.

The committee meets on the second Wednesday of every month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., typically at the Multnomah Building at 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd. in Portland. Members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners and serve a two-year term.

To apply, individuals need to fill out and submit an application form no later than May 15, 2015. Applications are available online. To request a hard copy of the application form or for more information, contact Kate McQuillan at 503-988-0204 or [email protected].
