Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows no longer have a joint Bicycle Advisory Committee. Pitt Meadows has decided to have its own Active Transportation Advisory Committee. For those who would like to get involved, this is a great opportunity to do so and help make cycling and walking in Pitt Meadows even better! Yesterday’s Times had the following announcement:
Are you an active walker or cyclist in Pitt Meadows?
The City of Pitt Meadows is now accepting applications from interested individuals in serving on the following Council appointed committee:
PITT MEADOWS ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The Active Transportation Advisory Committee advises Council and staff on strategic priorities and policies relating to active transportation in Pitt Meadows using the Pedestrian and Cycling Master Plan and the Master Transportation Plan as a guide. Other matters may include public education and promotion of active transportation modes, including the bi-annual Bike Week.
Letters of interest are being sought for the following volunteer positions:
- Six (6) public-at-large members residing in Pitt Meadows to begin December 1, 2013 for a two year term to expire November 30, 2015.
Letters should include an indication of why the candidate wishes to serve, along with their community involvement background, if any. Preference will be given for local representatives of HUB and other avid local cycling and walking organizations. An online application form is available on the City’s website under the City Hall – Committees and Commissions tab.
For further information, please contact Ike de Boer, Engineering Services Coordinator, Development Services Department, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-465-2425.
Please note: Applications will be accepted until Friday, November 1, 2013 at 4:30 pm.
