The Non-Motorized Advisory Committee (NMAC) supports an integrated transportation system with a focus on non-motorized components within the Skagit County region. The purpose of the committee is to elicit a dialog between levels of government, public agencies and private groups, and to consider transportation alternatives which are cost effective and incorporate non-motorized modes of travel.
The NMAC is a subcommittee of SCOG’s Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), which is made of public works and planning staffs from SCOG member jurisdictions. The NMAC’s mission supports an integrated, effective, and affordable transportation system for Skagit County, emphasizing the system’s non-motorized components. Direct advice on non-motorized transportation planning is provided to the TAC as needed.
The NMAC also serves as a technical resource for local agencies in addressing non-motorized transportation issues. The NMAC works to educate officials, staff, and the public regarding best practices in non-motorized policies and projects, and to help implement them.
