Safe Routes to School Advisory Committee Seeking New Members
ODOT wants someone with different cultural or ethnic approaches

Oregon's Safe Routes to School Advisory Committee says that they have identified expertise and experience that is missing in the current committee and is looking to add 3-4 new members.

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is stating that their idea of ideal candidates are younger people (ages 16 – 24), a person with a disability and/or someone with different cultural or ethnic approaches, and/or perspective as someone in the health field.

Timeline and process: The application will be open through September 15. Staff will follow up with applicants in September. A sub-committee of the Safe Routes to School Advisory committee will recommend 3-4 new members to ODOT’s director in October. New members will begin their term in January of 2023.

You can access the application in English and in Spanish online.

ODOT has an equitable engagement compensation policy that offers payment for time spent engaging with the agency and it's programs for those who qualify.

The SRAC recommends which grants to fund for ODOT’s Safe Routes to School Construction and Education programs. The SRAC is advisory to Oregon Department of Transportation, the Oregon Transportation Commission, and consultants with the Oregon Transportation Safety Committee. The SRAC’s charge is outlined in Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 737-025.

New SRAC members should attend and fully participate in six 3-hour meetings annually (generally every other month) starting in January 2023.

Meetings may be held online, in-person or as hybrid options. Accommodations to participate in meetings are available, such as material in alternate formats.

The SRAC determines the priorities for the SRTS program, provide feedback to staff for program implementation, and makes recommendations for grant funding.
