What we do:
The Board advises the City on issues related to bicycling and walking in Wichita. The board provides advice directly to the City Council; participates in planning and project development; evaluates policies; and makes recommendations to City departments. It plays an influential role in implementing Wichita’s Bicycle Master Plan. Board members also spend additional hours outside of board meetings to learn more about agenda items and to track projects.
The Board is comprised of diverse group of 11 Wichita residents that are interested in making Wichita a better place to bicycle and walk. This includes, but is not limited to cyclists of all skill levels, from casual weekend riders to year-round commuters; and people of all ages. The appointments to the Board are made by the City Council Members and the City Manager, following an application and recommendation process The Board members serve 2-year terms, with the potential to serve four consecutive terms.
