SLCBAC was originally founded in 2001 as a Salt Lake County Advisory Board. In this advisory capacity, members reviewed SLCo bicycle-related projects, including street signage and lane striping, and hosted events such as the Josie Johnson Memorial Bicycle Ride.
In 2009 Mayor Corroon directed his staff to re-structure SLCBAC so it would once again be a vibrant, productive committee. Several open houses were hosted from September-November 2009 to collect feedback from community members and SLCo employees alike.
The mission of the Salt Lake County Bicycle Advisory Committee (SLCBAC) is to advise the Salt Lake County Mayor's Office in all bicycle-related matters, and to promote bicycling as a safe, healthy, equitable, and beneficial mode of transportation.
To become [advocate] a premiere bicycling community for recreation and practical transportation.
