Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BTPAC)

Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BTPAC)

BTPAC meeting - April 2018The Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee - BTPAC, is responsible for advising and informing the TPA Board regarding bicycle and pedestrian issues in Palm Beach County.

Enactment of the 1984 Florida Bicycle Bill required all county and local municipal governments to give full consideration of the bicycle when planning and developing transportation. Florida became one of the nation's leaders in bicycle planning with the creation of a State Bicycle Office, Bicycle Coordinators in each FDOT District, and Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinators in a number of counties, including Palm Beach. In Palm Beach County, a bicycle-pedestrian advisory committee was formed in 1987, and later expanded to include greenways issues.

Meetings

Typically, meetings are held the first Thursday of most months. Meetings begin at 9:07 AM and are held in the 4th Floor Conference Room 4E-12, next to the TPA office in the Vista Center at 2300 N. Jog Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33411. Check the website calendar and the meeting links below for the current meeting schedule. Meeting agendas and backup information are posted in advance of each meeting.
