SALT LAKE CITY — Mayor Ralph Becker and the City Transportation Division have invited interested residents to apply for a position on a proposed new Bicycle Advisory Committee.
If adopted, the Bicycle Advisory Committee would be a standing committee of the city’s Transportation Advisory Board and serve as a connection for residents interested in any and all aspects of cycling.
“A primary goal of the new committee is to increase the diversity of the types of bicyclists giving input to the city,” said transportation director Robin Hutcheson. “Since 1977, we’ve had dedicated volunteers who have made great contributions to the success of bicycling in Salt Lake City. We’re seeking to build on that work.”
The committee would serve as an advisory body to other city departments and divisions in an effort to foster a wider integration of bicycling into various areas.
If an ordinance creating standing committees is approved by the City Council, up to 13 Salt Lake residents will be selected to serve two- or three-year terms for the bicycle committee.
