The city is looking to appoint twelve new volunteers to the Design Review Board, one of several citizen-led groups the Mayor and City Council have put in place to review major neighborhood development projects.
The committee as a whole is divided into several districts and each board is composed of five members who represent: design professions; development interests; general community interests; local business interests; and local residential interests. Board members volunteer about 12-14 hours a month, including twice-monthly meetings. The northwest district is looking to replace two retiring members with development interests and local residential interests.
“We are looking for professionals in the design and development fields, who have proven skills and established careers. We also need community and business leaders with an interest in shaping new development in their neighborhoods, and a passion for keeping Seattle a great place to live, work and play,” said Mayor Nickels in a press release.
Applications (.pdf) are due December 10th. The two-year volunteer term begins on April 10, 2010.
