The city of Kent needs residents to volunteer to serve on the Bicycle Advisory Board.

The 11-member board meets the last Monday of each month to advise the Kent mayor and City Council on projects, policies and programs that improve and/or affect bicycling conditions.

Board members serve one- and two-year terms, support the construction of bicycle facilities included in the Transportation Master Plan and the Non-motorized Transportation Study and they participate in updating planning documents, comment on permit applications, monitor engineering project plans and perform reviews and/or tours of bicycle projects.

Applications may be submitted online and are available at Kentwa.gov under the Boards and Commissions link. All applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1.
