Yesterday was the first meeting of the Crapta Mac, the CRTPA Multimodal Advisory Committee. This was the first meeting of that committee. It was formerly the Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC). BPAC had 11 citizen seats, 6 from the county and 5 from the city. The new committee includes seats for StarMetro, Commuter Services, FSU, FAMU, TCC, Wakulla County, Quincy, and one other (Midway?) and reduced the number of citizen seats to 8. Something like that.

Many people in the community were initially upset at the dissolution of the BPAC. Those who voted for it consider it a shake-up that may strengthen the voice for Bike, Ped and Transit travelers. The Tallahassee Democrat even covered the change.

The good news is, the majority of the committee is Bike Ped people from the old BPAC. Last night their agenda included setting priorities for the committee, which they pushed off to a subcommittee session so they could take their time with it. I am impressed by what I have seen so far.
