  1. I have a question, what is the role of public comment at these meetings? I note that it is NOT listed on the agenda they way it is at the Tuesday meeting of the I-195 Redevelopment Commission and on every agenda of the meetings of the Board of the RI Public Transit Authority, the Transportation Advisory Committee and others. If public comment and particpation is allowed or welcomed at the Bike/Ped Advisory Committee perhaps it should be explicitly noted on the agendas.

    It is allowed and welcome, I’ll let our Planning Staff person, who prepares and posts the agendas know.
