Let’s Get Going.
The Littleton Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (LBPAC) is a Town chartered committee. Its primary purpose is to promote bicycling and walking as a means of transportation, recreation, and fitness for Littleton residents of all ages and abilities. A major emphasis of the LBPAC is to improve the town’s facilities and infrastructure that are critical to making participation in these activities safer and easier.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee Charge / Mission Statement
The Littleton Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee aims to promote, enhance, and, where necessary, restore the physical, social, political, and economic environment in which bicycling, walking, and alternate transportation are valued as essential for a clean, safe, healthy, and vital community. In so doing, we hope to involve every element of the community in order to contribute to the economic development and wellbeing of the town of Littleton.
To accomplish this mission, the LBPAC will:
- Create a comprehensive view of both government and nongovernment activities that impact bicycle, pedestrian, and alternate transportation access in the town of Littleton.
- Advise the Board of Selectmen, the Planning Board, the Park and Recreation Department, the MBTA Advisory Committee, and other town officials, boards, commissions, committees, and departments, making it possible for them to coordinate activities that impact bicycling, walking, and alternate transportation.
- Make recommendations for policies, policy changes, and bylaws concerning bicycling, walking, and alternative transportation.
- Make recommendations for proposed improvements to local infrastructure such as, but not limited to, commercial and residential development, roads, bridges, and recreational paths and parks on how they can facilitate bicycle, pedestrian, and alternate transportation access. This includes, but is not limited to, bike lanes, bike racks, sidewalks, parks, crosswalks, traffic calming measures, trails, and pathways.
- Work with local entities and public welfare departments to encourage a community that embraces bicycling, walking, and alternate transportation; educate the community on the presence, concerns, and development of bicycling, walking, and alternate transportation; and support local activism to promote safety and awareness of bicycles, pedestrians, and alternate transportation.
- Work with municipal and state entities to develop and execute solutions for bicycles, pedestrians, and alternate transportation. These entities include, but are not limited to, the Massachusetts Highway Department Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator, the Central Transportation Planning Staff, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the MetroWest Growth Management Committee, and the Bicycle Coalition of Massachusetts.
