APBP Board Appoints Representatives to NCUTCD
Wednesday, May 7, 2014
Peter Koonce, PE has been appointed by the APBP Board of Directors as APBP’s representative to the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (NCUTCD). Peter is the City of Portland, Oregon's Division Manager for Signals, Street Lighting & ITS.
Craig Williams has been appointed by the APBP Board of Directors Craig Williams to serve as the alternate. Craig is Senior Associate | San Diego Office Director for Alta Planning + Design. Craig also serves on the APBP Board of Directors and is an officer (treasurer).
Both appointments continue through December 2015.
APBP salutes its outgoing representatives to the NCUTCD Michael Moule, Chief of Engineering with the County of Kauai Public Works and Bill Schultheiss, Civil Engineer with Toole Design Group for their excellent service to APBP members. APBP member and former Board President Michael Moule worked tirelessly to ensure that APBP became a sponsor of the NCUTCD. Both Moule and Schultheiss continue to serve on NCUTCD technical committees.
The next NCUTCD meeting is in Minneapolis June 25-27. APBP members are encouraged to attend, learn about and to seek appointment to technical committees. Peter Koonce and Craig Williams currently serve on the Bicycle Technical Committee. APBP members can contact them for more info about the NCUTCD.
APBP members who have served or who currently serve on NCUTCD technical committees may seek appointment to an internal APBP committee that reviews NCUTCD proposals. APBP members with an interest in ensuring that the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) keeps pace with the needs of pedestrians and bicyclists may join an internal APBP action team to develop proposals. An application is required for either role; APBP members will receive a link to the application through the APBP June enews.
