Authority: Chapter 2.52 of the Merced Municipal Code
The Bicycle Advisory Commission serves as an advisory body to the City Council on matters relating to improving conditions for bicyclists, promoting bicycling as a means of transportation with the associated benefits of improved air quality, and improving safety conditions for bicyclists.
The commission has the responsibility of reviewing and advising the City Council on the design of capital improvement projects, changes and updates to the Active Transportation and Safe-Routes-to-School Plan, General Plan, and Municipal Code as they relate to bicycling, promoting bicycling as a viable form of transportation and assist in the development and dissemination of bicycle awareness and education materials to the community, and any other duties that the City Council may proscribe.
The Commission consists of seven registered City of Merced voting members, and two ex-officio members appointed at the City Council's discretion. Ex-officio members are non-voting members who may be non-city residents who live within the City's sphere of influence, or persons who otherwise demonstrate a strong concern for bicycle-related issues within the City. Regular meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of every even numbered month at 3:00 PM. This position requires the filing of a Statement of Economic Interests under the California Fair Political Practices Act guidelines.
