APBP Board of Directors Candidate Statement

Billy Hattaway
Fehr & Peers

Billy Hattaway Headshot

Please briefly describe your current position and how your work relates to the bicycle/pedestrian field: 
I am a Principal at Fehr & Peers and active in our national Multi-modal Safety and Complete Streets/Bike/Pedestrian Discipline Group. I have/am currently teaching staff and local agencies in FDOT Districts One and Seven Vision Zero/Safe Systems training with a focus on vulnerable users, pedestrians and bicyclists.

Why do you want to serve on the APBP Board of Directors? What do you hope to gain over the term of your Board Membership?:
I am on the Steering Committee for the Complete Streets Coalition, and want to contribute my national and five years of experience leading the pedestrian/bicycle safety initiative experience and Vision Zero as the Transportation Director at the City of Orlando with the organization. I'm all about making a difference for pedestrians and bicyclists in Florida and nationally.

Please describe your goals for APBP and how your leadership on the Board will benefit the association. 
One area that consistently gets little attention in the transportation industry and national organizations is the need to integrate land use and transportation to achieve the goals for safe and comfortable travel by pedestrians and cyclists. I was able to lead implantation of complete streets at FDOT using the context of built environment to inform the transportation design of streets, sidewalks and bike facilities.

Past volunteer/leadership positions with APBP: 
I am currently on the Policy Committee. 

Past volunteer/leadership positions with other organizations: 
Chair for Bike/Walk Central Florida (2012-2020), Steering Committee Complete Streets Coalition (2017-present), Congress for the New Urbanism Florida Chapter, co-chair Board of Directors (2012-present), FDOT Bike/Ped Safety Coalition Champion/Vision Zero Agency Lead (2012-2020), Bike/Walk Tampa Bay Board (2021-present), FDOT Motorcycle Safety Coalition (9 months).
