Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board seeks new members
SEATTLE – The Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board (SPAB) is accepting applications for new members to help make walking in Seattle safer and easier. The volunteer board was created by the Seattle City Council in 1993 and plays an influential role in implementing Seattle’s Pedestrian Master Plan to achieve our vision to become the most walkable and accessible city in the nation. The board advises the Mayor and City Council, participates in planning and project development, evaluates policies, and makes recommendations to all city departments including the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).
We are currently looking for candidates to fill at least two positions. Board members are typically frequent users of our pedestrian network and represent a variety of ages, levels of mobility, diverse communities, and reside in neighborhoods throughout the city. Members must be Seattle residents. The board meets the second Wednesday of each month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at City Hall on Fifth Avenue between James and Cherry streets.
The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in the City’s boards and commissions. Women, young persons, seniors, persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, persons of color, immigrants, and refugees are encouraged to apply. Interested Seattleites should submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest via email by January 26, 2018 to: Howard Wu at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, contact Howard Wu by email, by phone at (206) 684-3902 or by mail at:
