Purpose

The purpose of the Broward County Bicycling and Pedestrian Advisory Committee is to study and advise the Broward County Board of County Commissioners, with the cooperation and assistance of the County Administrator, on all matters related to bicycling and walking (Chapter 12, Section 12.217, Broward County Administrative Code).​

History 

The committee was originally created by Broward County Resolution on October 6, 1981, with a focus on bicycling.  In 2005, the committee name was amended by resolution to the Bicycling and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) and the duties were expanded to include pedestrian concerns. The BPAC consists of ten members, with each of the nine Broward County Commissioners appointing one representative and one appointed by the Broward League of Cities.

March is Bicycle Month

March is Bicycle Month throughout the State of Florida.  Broward County residents and visitors are encouraged to participate in Bicycle Month events being held.  The Broward County Board of County Commissioners issued a new proclamation in 2022 that encourages residents and visitors to practice bicycle safety and to always be aware of cyclists on our roads.

​Priorities

At the June 14, 2017, meeting, BPAC unanimously adopted the following priorities:  
  • Encourage projects and enforcement efforts that prioritize pedestrian and bicycle safety.
  • Support timely and sustainable funding of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and amenities, including greenways and off-network paths.
  • Collaborate with public and private entities including, Broward MPO, FDOT, Broward County, and Broward municipalities to ensure Bicycle and Pedestrian projects, policy, and ordinances are implemented.
  • Promote bicycle and pedestrian focused outreach and events, especially those that underscore safety, funding, and education.
  • Endorse linkages for safe, comfortable, and convenient bicycle and pedestrian networks to seamlessly integrate with other transportation options.

Committee Meetings 

Meetings are tentatively scheduled the second Wednesday every other month, starting in January, at 6:30pm at Government Center West, 1 North University Drive, Plantation, 33324, 2nd Floor Hearing Room.  BPAC meetings will be announced through Sunshine meeting notice directory.  Dates and location may be subject to change.  Please continue to check this page for updates.
