REDMOND, OR – City of Redmond’s Bicycle and the Redmond Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) is seeking volunteers to help with the inaugural Redmond Open Streets event, slated for Saturday, June 23 from Noon to 4:00 p.m. in downtown Redmond.  Deschutes Avenue will be closed to vehicles between 6th St. and 15th St. during this FREE event; allowing participants to stroll, walk, or ride back and forth in a safe environment and visit family friendly activity centers along the way. 

For a successful event, BPAC needs intersection ‘Super Hero’ volunteers.  What makes intersection ‘Super Heroes’ cool?  It’s the #1 most important volunteer position of the event!  They assist event participants, help residents along the event route, and conduct participant counts. Volunteer shifts are in 2 hour 45-minute increments comprised of a quick volunteer training and shift duties as assigned. The first shift is from 11:30 a.m. - 2:15 p.m. and the second is from 1:30 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.
