Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee


Each council office has been asked to identify an individual to serve on the Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC). The Committee exists to determine whether any intersection utilized by children in coming to and from school poses a special problem of safety requiring the installation of an adult crossing guard. The PSAC has been inactive for the past several years due in large part to the inability to maintain a quorum to conduct business. The City would like to reactivate the Committee. Would you like to volunteer?

The Committee will meet three to four times per year and meetings will occur during the daytime. All members of the PSAC will be required to complete and file a Form 700 - Statement of Economic Interests.
