The Cycling Public Advisory Committee meets Thursday in the Florence Filberg Centre Evergreen Lounge.

All members of the public are invited to attend a meeting of the Cycling Public Advisory Committee (CPAC) in the Florence Filberg Centre Evergreen Lounge at 7 p.m. this Thursday.

The committee is looking for your ideas on cycling in the Comox Valley. Commuters, recreational cyclists, mountain bikers or anyone with thoughts on how to help us make cycling safer and more enjoyable are welcome.

CPAC advocates for cycling issues in the Comox Valley, and makes recommendations to the Comox Valley Cycling Task Force and specific jurisdictions on regional cycling issues. They also communicate with the general public on cycling issues, concerns and suggestions.

The Cycling Task Force is made up of members of all local governments, working together to develop a comprehensive cycling strategy. Their goal is to improve cycling access in the Comox Valley, both recreationally and for commuting, and to improve safe travel for all members of the public and safe access to regional bikeways by communicating public ideas to other elected officials.

Topics of Discussion will include:

• Recent developments regarding Fitzgerald Avenue;

• The Sixth Street bridge proposal;

• Bike conflict with other road users;

• Progress with the HASTe program;

• Street sweeping;

• Bike licensing;

• Anfield Road development;

•    Any other topics participants wish to raise;
