Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committees provide public input to elected officials and others who are making decisions that impact bicycle and pedestrians facilities.
BPACs often have expertise valuable to government organizations, but rarely are they used effectively. Mostly likely this failure is due to lack of control and managerial experiance in lead organizations and poor commitment by members of the BPAC. The solution is for the BPACs to deliver results pro-actrively. Although Hendersonville has no official BPAC, the unofficial committee identifies needs and offers advice in advance of city administrator requests.
