Clark County is seeking applicants to fill five positions on the nine-member Clark Communities Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.

Volunteer service will be a four-year commitment. Residents living anywhere in Clark County can apply.

People with experience and expertise in advocating for biking, walking, transit, active transportation, mobility issues, public speaking or serving on boards and commissions are encouraged to apply.

Meetings typically are 6-8 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Center for Community Health, 1601 E.
