The Pedestrian Advisory Committee was created in 2006 and restructured in 2010 by Resolution 2010R-170. The committee is charged with advising the Mayor and City Council on policies, programs, and actions for improving pedestrian safety, mobility, accessibility, and comfort; for promoting walking for transportation, recreation, and health purposes; and for strengthening the linkage between the pedestrian environment and public transportation.
The committee is composed of 15 voting members who reside or own a business in the City and who have an interest in promoting walking and improving the pedestrian environment in Minneapolis. The voting membership as a whole should represent the following perspectives on pedestrian issues:
- distinct pedestrian user groups, such as people with disabilities, senior citizens, parents or people who work with children, and transit riders;
- caretakers of the pedestrian environment, such as property owners, neighborhood groups, business owners, and business associations;
- people with relevant technical expertise, such as traffic safety, urban design, and public health;
- people representing diverse social, cultural and economic groups in the City; and
- people representing distinct geographic areas of the City, including at least one member from each of the five sectors of the City (Downtown, East, North, South, and Southwest).
The committee also includes non-voting members from City Departments and partner agencies with an interest in and impact on pedestrian issues to provide expertise on pedestrian issues and to serve as a liaison between the committee and City departments and partner agencies.
