When the City considers policies affecting people walking and biking, they’ve created advisory committees of local leaders to help them make informed decisions. The Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) and the Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) are in need of new voices to help City leaders make the best decisions for safer streets.
The Bicycle Advisory Committee is made up of 11 representatives — one appointed by each Supervisor to represent their district. Appointed members work as public representatives to help provide our electeds and our city agencies with important information and recommendations regarding the safety of people biking and walking. On the BAC, there are currently openings for District 1 (Richmond) and District 6 (SoMa/Tenderloin) residents. On the PSAC, there are multiple open seats, including an opening for someone representing “Bicycle or Non-motorized Organizations.”
Now is the chance for the right candidates to become even more involved in helping make San Francisco a better place to live and bike. Want to make sure that the voices of people who walk and bike are reaching the right people? Or do you know someone that would be great for these roles? Check out the PSAC website or the BAC website on how to get involved.
