Looking for a way to become more civically engaged? Passionate about emission-free transportation options? Now’s the time for you to become a leader in your community.
The City of Austin is looking for new members to join its pedestrian and bicycle advisory councils.
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 councils will be accepted through September 16th.
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.
