Local Advisory Committees

Several communities in the metro area have citizen advisory committees that provide input to their City Councils on bike/pedestrian issues, policies, and plans. These are great opportunities for individuals to have a voice in local decision-making, and even volunteer time serving on a committee.

All committees meet at their respective City Halls unless otherwise noted. Visit the links below to learn about each committee, confirm future meetings, and find out how to join a committee in your community.
