Additional Information

Monthly meetings times are typically the first Wednesday of the month in the afternoon.  There is no compensation for serving on the committee.  The committee meeting locations are accessible to persons with disabilities.

The committee is composed of 15 voting members who reside or own a business in the City and who have an interest in promoting walking and improving the pedestrian environment in Minneapolis.  The voting membership as a whole should represent the following perspectives on pedestrian issues: distinct pedestrian user groups, such as people with disabilities, senior citizens, parents or people who work with children, and transit riders; caretakers of the pedestrian environment, such as property owners, neighborhood groups, business owners, and business associations; people with relevant technical expertise, such as traffic safety, urban design, and public health; people representing diverse social, cultural and economic groups in the City; and people representing distinct geographic areas of the City, including at least one member from each of the five sectors of the City (Downtown, East, North, South, and Southwest).

The committee also includes non-voting members from City Departments and partner agencies with an interest in and impact on pedestrian issues to provide expertise on pedestrian issues and to serve as a liaison between the committee and City departments and partner agencies.
