For the second time in four months, the Tucson-Pima Bicycle Advisory Committee failed to make a quorum and canceled their meeting.
They did however receive a brief update from outgoing Tucson transportation director Jim Glock.
Glock told the committee that the search for his replacement has stalled because of a lack of interest in the position. He said four people from the pool are still under consideration, but the search committee is looking for additional candidates.
He said in the interim, former director Tony Paez — whom Glock took the position over from — is going to return until the city hires a new transportation director.
Glock said when Paez was the director he supported alternate modes of transportation and believes he will continue supporting alternate modes during his interim stint.
Glock said he appreciated the BAC’s support and thanked them for working with him when he made mistakes including, he said, the Toole/Congress/4th Avenue intersection.
The meeting was supposed to involve updates from the BAC and transportation officials. Ian Johnson, the BAC chairperson, said the goal was to see all that the city and county had accomplished in the last year and look forward to the next year to determine priorities.
Johnson said he hoped the updates would take place in January.
