Get Invloved! BPAC Meeting Today

If you want a more bike and pedestrian friendly Jacksonville. You need to get involved. Yes, I recently posted why marketing is better than advocacy below. But if you read it then you know I also stated the we have to continue the work of advocacy.

Tonight is the meeting of Jacksonville's BPAC (Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee)

From the MPO site:

"The Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee (B/PAC) includes citizens and agency representatives who wish to further bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Recent Federal legislation has increased the emphasis on providing alternative travel modes and many new bicycle and pedestrian facilities have been funded through the Federal Highway Administration’s Enhancement Funds administered by the Florida Department of Transportation. The B/PAC recommends facilities funding in short and long range transportation plans and also provides a forum to coordinate facilities, such as linking trails and greenways through multiple jurisdictions. The B/PAC meets the third Thursday of January, March, May, July, September and November at 5 p.m."

If you would like to get involved or just wish know what is going on in the planning. Please make the time to attend.

Meeting time: 5:00 PM
