Kevin St Jacques Headshot

Please briefly describe your current position and how your work relates to the bicycle/pedestrian field: 
Senior Transportation Engineer at Freese and Nichols, Inc. in Dallas, Texas. I prepare multimodal transportation plans for communities and traffic studies for multimodal accommodations in public ROW. I have developed over 20 bike/ped plans for small areas, cities and MPO regions.

Why do you want to be a Board member? What do you hope to gain over the term of your Board membership? 
I have been a member of APBP for quite a while now and would appreciate the opportunity to help steer the ship. I look forward to the opportunity to serve with some folks that I've known and respected for years and to grow in my understanding of the mechanics of cooperation between the many like-minded agencies.

Please describe your goals for APBP and how your leadership on the Board will benefit the association. 
As an engineer that collaborates with community planners, I bring the implementation viewpoint to bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. I would like to help guide the focus of our efforts for engaging APBP with the agency design and programming staff.

Past volunteer/leadership positions with APBP: 
I assisted in presenting the ADA training that was put on at Houston-Galveston Area Council and at an ITE conference in Chicago. I also have been a member of the Speakers Bureau for the National Complete Streets Coalition which required joint membership in those two organizations.

Past volunteer/leadership positions with other organizations: 
I have been actively involved in ITE for many years, serving as Dallas Section President and currently on the Texas District ex-officio board as chair of the Awards Committee. At the national level, I am a member of Bicycle and Pedestrian Council.
