Get Involved

There are two committees that advise the city on public concerns relating to bicycle and pedestrian issues. These meetings are open for all to attend and speak in the call to the public. Members of each committee are appointed by elected officials in the jurisdiction being represented. Subcommittee membership is open to the public, including non-members of the general committee. If you are interested in applying for an appointment as a City of Tucson representative to the Bicycle Advisory Committee or the Pedestrian Advisory Committee, please email Andy Bemis.
