Plans and Projects
The Plans and Projects (PnP) Committee works to advance Oregon Walks’ mission “to promote walking and to make the conditions for walking safe, convenient and attractive for everyone.” PnP members represent Oregon Walks on planning and project advisory committees throughout the region. The committee is made up of volunteers from a variety of professional and education backgrounds. Committee members participate in transportation and land use planning, advocacy, mapping, communications, and pedestrian planning and policies.
The Plans and Projects Committee performs a number of roles including:
- Advisory Committees: PnP members represent Oregon Walks on
citizen and technical advisory committees for planning projects
throughout the Portland metropolitan region. PnP members help to inform planning processes and advocate for pedestrian needs.
Examples of recent and current community advisory committees with PnP representatives include: Division Transit Project, Beaverton Active Transportation Plan, and PedPDX.
- Advocacy: PnP committee members advocate for pedestrian projects, policies and funding. The committee performs technical research, monitors the development of plans and policies, and submits written letters of support or opposition for projects and testifies at hearings in front of policymakers.
- And more: The committee is hoping to participate in trainings, develop tools to help prioritize pedestrian projects, and connect with pedestrian organizations and municipalities throughout the metro region.
