Overview

The Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) is responsible for reviewing plans, policies, and procedures as they relate to bicycle and pedestrian issues within the TPO planning area. In addition, the BPAC is responsible for the review and ranking of bicycle and pedestrian priority project applications that are submitted on an annual basis through the TPO’s annual Call for Projects.  The mission of the BPAC is to:

“Create and implement a regional plan for the continuing enhancement and expansion of the bicycle and pedestrian network. We will support activities that encourage and provide for a safe and balanced transportation system that promotes connectivity, mobility, health and an improved quality of life.”

The BPAC meets in the Airline Room at the Daytona Beach International Airport on the second Wednesday of each month (except July and December) at 2:00 p.m.
