Applicants sought for State Scenic Bikeway Committee

May 3, 2016

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is seeking to establish a list of candidates to serve on the State Scenic Bikeway Committee in at-large positions.

Two seats are 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 positions are a volunteer appointment and authorized for travel reimbursement.

The ideal candidates would have experience with bicycle tourism, community groups, and experience with underserved groups.

The committee advises OPRD with the long view of strengthening the existing program and proponent groups associated with each designated bikeway and makes recommendations to the department on designations and other matters pertaining to the bikeways program.

Those interested in serving must submit a bikeway committee interest form by May 12. For information or to obtain an interest form, go to
