Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee

Established in 2000 by the Capital Region Planning Commission, this group provides an active living initiative from an established, goal orientated group of citizens representing professionals and organizations for the Baton Rouge metropolitan area. This group provides a mechanism that enables citizens, who represent the ultimate consumers of the product, to input their concerns about facilities that are desirable and usable. Projects include addressing problems with existing facilities, education of bike riders, pedestrians and motorists on safety issues and the Baton Rouge Area Bike Map.

The committee has representatives from various City-Parish, state agencies and other local advocacy groups including:

Baton Rouge Planning Commission,

Baton Rouge Recreation and Parks Commission,

Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development,

Alliance for Healthy Transportation,

Sierra Club
