Pedestrian Master Plan Advisory Group

The Pedestrian Master Plan Advisory Group (PedAG) will assist Planning staff throughout the planning process, developing the plan’s goals and objectives, delving into existing conditions, and critiquing draft recommendations. The PedAG will meet regularly for the duration of the plan, and all meetings will be open to the public, with an opportunity for public comment. Meeting dates and times will be posted in the project website.

The PedAG draws membership from two places: members appointed from stakeholder groups, and members chosen through an online application process. Staff identified 20 stakeholder groups that represent the county’s geographic regions, racial/ethnic groups, development community, and pedestrian interest groups, and asked them to appoint members to the PedAG. The PedAG has 11 members who applied, chosen from an applicant pool of 78 community members. Selected members come from across the county and bring diverse perspectives on pedestrian issues and opportunities. While some members bring technical transportation planning and engineering knowledge, all are passionate about making the county better for pedestrians.
