Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill four public member vacancies on the Montgomery County Pedestrian and Traffic Safety Advisory Committee. Three incumbents are eligible to apply for reappointment.
The 17-member Advisory Committee includes six government representatives, one public school representative, one Maryland Municipal League representative and nine general public members who represent various regions of Montgomery County, including one representative of the bicycle advocacy community.
This committee advises the County Executive, County Council, and elected officials on implementation of the County’s Pedestrian Safety Initiative, priorities and needs in the area of pedestrian and bicycle safety and access, gathers information on pedestrian and bicycle safety, and identifies any new issues that may emerge.
Members serve three-year terms without compensation but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. Meetings generally are held every other month on weekday evenings. All members are also expected to serve on various sub-committees, and these meetings will be held as needed.
