District Seeking Advisors on Recreational Trails Priorities

DC Residents: The Mayor’s Office of Talent Acquisition (MOTA) is seeking three new appointees to the District’s Recreational Trails Advisory Committee. This Committee advises the District on how to use approximately $700K in annual Federal Highway Administration passthrough dollars, designated in the National Recreational Trails Fund Act. The Mayor’s office is looking for a diversity of user types, as the funds are for all types of trail users–hikers, bikers, ATV riders, snowmobilers, skiers, etc. But given a realistic look at who the primary and lawful trail users are in a fully urban District, it is important to ensure that the perspective of people who bike is well-represented on the Committee. If you are interested in applying, you can do so through the MOTA website, here.
