The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is seeking to establish a list of candidates to serve on the State Scenic Bikeway Committee in an at-large position.
One seat is open on the 11-member committee. Members of the committee are appointed by the OPRD director to a four-year term and are eligible for reappointment. The committee meets approximately five times per year, usually in Salem, for an all-day meeting with additional field trips throughout the state to proposed and designated Bikeways. The at-large position is a volunteer appointment and authorized for travel reimbursement.
The ideal candidate would have experience with proponent groups of designated bikeways, bicycle tourism, community groups, and experience with underserved groups.
The committee advises OPRD on ways to strengthen the existing program and the proponent groups associated with each designated Bikeway. The committee also makes recommendations to the department on matters pertaining to the Bikeways program.
Those interested in serving must submit a Bikeway Committee Interest Form by February 28, 2017. For information or to obtain an interest form, go to http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/BIKE/Pages/info.aspx or contact Alexandra Phillips, at email@example.com or 503-986-0631.
