Seeking Volunteers for Redmond's Annual Bicycle and Pedestrian Count
Calling for Volunteers
REDMOND, OR - In the continued effort to build a safe network to encourage biking and walking in Redmond, the City of Redmond Bicycle and the Redmond Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) is looking for volunteers to help conduct the annual bicycle and pedestrian counts. After establishing a baseline of bicycle and pedestrian users in the community four years ago, this year’s counts will measure the progress of community marketing efforts and the impact of physical improvements to the bicycle and pedestrian network, as well as helping to build support for future improvements.
We need volunteers for two hour shifts to sit at designated locations and count users on Thursday, September 14, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. and/or Saturday, September 16, from noon to 2 p.m. Training and safety gear will be provided. Volunteers will be treated to a free pizza party! Thank you and please pass this on to others.
It’s easy to volunteer one of two ways:
- Go to the City of Redmond website (http://www.ci.redmond.or.us/) and reserve your favorite location and access important information.
- Contact Scott Woodford with the City of Redmond either by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 541-923-7758
The purpose of the BPAC is to increase pedestrian utility and bicycle ridership in Redmond – to encourage more people to bike and walk around Redmond as a means of exercise, sustainability and community. BPAC represents all bicycle and pedestrian users in Redmond, both current and future by advocating for the development of additional bike and pedestrian facilities that are user friendly, inviting and compelling, reviewing transportation projects from the viewpoint of bicycle and pedestrian users and spearheading encouragement and educational activities.
