Indian Nations Council of Governments

  

The first meeting was mainly an introduction of the members and a determination of the organizational style it will use. Since this group was not formally created by an act of the legislature, and there is no funding, it was decided to organize as a consensus style.

 

The purpose of the group is to collect issues relating to cycling and walking within the state, review and consolidate those issues, and route them to the appropriate department within ODOT. It will also serve as a resource for ODOT staff as they encounter bike and walking design issues.  

 

A couple of items already on the radar for the council is Rumble Strip placement, and publishing a bike route map of Oklahoma.

 

The council will meet quarterly, or more often as needed.

 

As you think of other items that this council should work on, you can send those ideas to Okla.Bicycling.Coalition@cox.net. You can also contact Jessica Scott, our ODOT Bike/Ped Coordinator at bikeped@odot.org
