Remember last week when we told you about openings on the City of Austin Bicycle Advisory Council? Well, as it turns out, the Pedestrian Advisory Council is looking for new members as well.
The Pedestrian Advisory Council (PAC) and Bicycle Advisory Council (BAC) are citizen-led, citizen-elected groups whose monthly meetings serve as platforms for Austin residents to advise the City of Austin on planning, policy, design, funding, education, and enforcement efforts related to walking and biking. Applications for both will be accepted through August 20th.
A quick note on advisory councils – these groups are important! They’re a great way to make your voice be heard and ensure that you are involved in shaping the future of your city. Also, unlike a board or commission, you do not need to be appointed by a City Council member in order to serve. All you need to do is apply and then be elected by fellow advisory council members.
