Conway Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board

BPAB

Mission & Goals

The mission of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board (BPAB) is to work with the city of Conway to recommend ways the city can become and remain:

  1. An official Bicycle-Friendly Community as designated by the League of American Bicyclists,
  2. An official Walk-Friendly Community as designated by the UNC Highway Safety Research Center and the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center
  3. A community that seeks to achieve the federal and state goals of the Safe Routes to Schools program

The goals of SRTS and the assessment tools of the WFC initiative include the five Es that the League uses to certify bicycle friendly communities. Doing so entails

  1. Engineering of streets to include bicycle facilities (lanes, sharrows, etc) and to expand paved trail networks
  2. Educational efforts to help bicyclists and motorists learn to share the road
  3. Enforcement efforts to ensure that bicyclists and motorists both know and obey the rules of the road
  4. Encouraging the citizens of Conway to increase bicycling through events
  5. Evaluating our progress in responding to the needs of bicyclists in our community

The expanded Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board will focus on these five Es of Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, and Evaluation and the added focus on pedestrian issues.

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board consists of eleven members, each of whom is a citizen of the City of Conway and appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council.

The Board meets on the third Thursday of each month.
