The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC) was established on June 16, 2006 with the primary purpose of advising City Council on how to make bicycling and walking viable modes of transportation in the city of Urbana. BPAC duties include: analyze routing, operation and safety of bicycles; review and make recommendations regarding the City's Capital Improvement Plan and Bicycle Master Plan; perform a regular evaluation and recommend an action plan for biking and walking facilities; coordinate with external agencies on maps and regional connections; develop education and public outreach opportunities on bicycle and pedestrian issues; and assist the City in the development of bicycle and pedestrian systems with the community.
BPAC consists of eleven (11) members appointed by the Mayor, and approved by the Council, from constituencies which have an interest and expertise in bicycle and pedestrian issues such as bicycle commuting, bicycle clubs, running, transportation planning, recreation, child advocacy, senior advocacy, physical fitness, and business. Four (4) members are representatives from the Urbana School District, Urbana Park District, University of Illinois and City of Urbana Public Works Department.
BPAC meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at 400 South Vine Street, Urbana, Illinois 61801.
