The city is looking for new members to join the Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board, a group founded in 1993 to get people out of their cars and walking.
The volunteer group is instrumental in implementing the city’s Pedestrian Master Plan, which was adopted in 2009. The group also advises the Mayor and City Council, participates in planning and project development, and evaluates policies and makes recommendations to all city departments including the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).
Board members serve a minimum of one two-year term, with the opportunity to serve a second term. Board members are “frequent walkers of a variety of ages, levels of mobility, and walks of life, and from areas throughout the city,” the release states. Meetings are the second Wednesday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m.
Interested Seattle residents can submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest in the board by emailing Brian Dougherty at firstname.lastname@example.org. Resumes will be accepted until December 17th.
