The Construction and Operations (C&O) Committee oversees the coordination of construction, operation, and eventual maintenance for the bike park. This is achieved through coordinating delivery and instillation of park construction materials, inspecting and maintaining all bike specific infrastructure, coordinating volunteer work days as needed, and developing a bike park operations manual. Additional committee objectives include coordinating with local non-profits and user groups to facilitate sustainable practices (ecosystem restoration, water harvesting) on site and promoting accessible use of the facility by under served groups in the greater Tucson community.
