Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee

The Springfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) was established to provide input on bicycle and pedestrian policies, infrastructure, programs, education, and enforcement. The committee advises the City Council and city staff on matters relating to pedestrian and bicycle planning.

The Springfield (BPAC) meets once every two months on the 2nd Tuesday of that month unless otherwise noted on this webpage. Meetings are open to the public. To read the BPAC Bylaws click here.
