The City of Cambridge is looking for people who enjoy walking or bicycling to join its pedestrian and bicycle committees. Pedestrians and cyclists of all ages are encouraged to apply.
The two committees work on a variety of issues. They review major development and roadway plans from a pedestrian or cyclist perspective. They work with city staff on both general practices and specific projects. Both committees are concerned with improving city facilities, traffic calming, public education, enforcement and promotion. Both include residents and representatives of city departments.
Committee applicants should be enthusiastic walkers or cyclists who live in Cambridge, can attend monthly meetings and are willing to work on projects. The pedestrian committee generally meets on the fourth Thursday of the month from 6-8 p.m. The bicycle committee meets on the second Wednesday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Both groups usually meet at City Hall Annex, 344 Broadway, Cambridge.
To apply for appointment to either the bicycle or the pedestrian committee, send a letter by November 19, 2010 describing your interest in pedestrian or bicycle issues to Robert W. Healy, City Manager. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The postal service address is c/o Rosalie Anders, Environmental and Transportation Planning, 344 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139. Appointments are for two years. For more information, call 617-349-4604.
