In Remembrance

Adrian Freund, Chairman of the Bicycle Advisory Committee passed away suddenly in May 2020. Adrian truly enjoyed being the Chair of the BAC over the past two and a half years and working with the community on numerous projects. He believed in BAC’s mission and vision and worked hard on building a great team of people for the Bicycle Advisory Committee. Not only will he be missed by the committee, but his wealth of knowledge and experience in planning will be missed in Beaverton, throughout Oregon and nationally. He was a Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners (FAICP), a two-term National American Planning Association (APA) Director and past President of the Nevada and Wisconsin Chapters. He thoroughly enjoyed his work while also being a mentor and educator for new planners. Not only did he love planning, bicycling, walking, learning and volunteering he also loved animals and nature. Adrian will truly be missed!
