Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission advises Council on matters pertaining to current trends and experiences in enhancing multi-modal travel; integration of Town trails and bike and pedestrian paths with neighboring jurisdictions; reviewing relevant grant applications; focusing on transportation around schools, including enhancing safe routes to schools efforts; reviewing and updating the Town's Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan as needed; and related topics as directed by the Town Council or requested by Town staff.
The Commission's membership consists of seven members. Membership composition shall be one each appointed from and by the membership of the Transportation and Parking Commission, the Parks Commission and the Youth Commission, three members appointed by the Town Council, and one member appointed from and by the membership of the Los Gatos Safe Routes to School Committee.
The term of office shall be for one year for appointments by the Transportation and Parking, Parks, and Youth Commissions with no limitations on reappointment; one year for appointments by the Los Gatos Safe Routes to School Committee; and three years for appointments by the Town Council. Initial Town Council appointments shall be one commissioner for a three year term, one commissioner for a two year term, and one commissioner for a one year term, so as to avoid terms expiring concurrently.
