When Do We Meet?
Maryland's Bicycle and
Pedestrian Access Plan
The present-day Maryland Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (MBPAC) was formed in December 1991 as the Bicycle Advisory Committee (Chapter 624, Acts of 1991). In July 2000, the Committee became the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (Chapter 670, Acts of 2000). The Committee advises State government agencies on issues directly related to bicycling and pedestrian activity including funding, public awareness, safety and education.
The twenty-two member committee is appointed by the Governor, combining the experience of citizens with the expertise of State officials. Committee members represent geographical regions throughout the State and specific interests, including those of visually and mobility impaired individuals. Nine State agencies are represented, including:
- Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development
- Maryland Department of Disabilities
- Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
- Maryland Department of Natural Resources
- Maryland Department of Planning
- Maryland Department of Transportation
- Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission
