Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) Vacancies 

The Bicycle Advisory Committee was created in 1990 and re-organized in 2001 and 2010. The purpose of the Committee is to advise the Mayor, City Council, and Park Board on bicycling related issues such as:

·       advance the state of bicycle infrastructure by reviewing proposed bicycle facilities and other projects likely to have an impact on bicyclists as a voice for end users;

·       encourage more people to bicycle, both to meet their daily needs and for recreation through such activities as participation in bike/walk celebrations and coordination with the Bicycle Ambassador program;

·       educate the public on safe and conscientious bicycling;

·       work towards more compliance with traffic laws by both bicyclists and drivers through better enforcement;

·       help the City and Park Board make bicycle plans and evaluate progress;

·       work to increase equity between bicyclists and other modes of transportation, especially equity in resource allocation;

·       review and suggest legislative and policy changes that will have an impact on bicyclists;

·       recommend priorities for the use of public funds on bicycle projects, both infrastructure and programming;

·       help ensure that Minneapolis keeps and improves its status as a bicycle friendly community; serve as both a liaison between Minneapolis communities and the City and Park Board; coordinate between different agencies that interact with bicyclists.
