If you’re a keen biker and want to work with the city to improve biking access in Seattle, you may want to consider applying to serve on the Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board. The Seattle Department of Transportation is accepting applications until August 11.
According to SDOT, the volunteer board, established by Seattle City Council 30 years ago, helps to implement the Bicycle Master Plan, advises the mayor and city council, participates in planning and project development, evaluates policies and makes recommendations to all city departments. The terms are two years, with an opportunity to serve a second term. Meetings are the first Wednesday of each month from 6 to 8pm at Seattle City Hall.
“Current members represent all types of bicyclists and skill levels, from casual weekend riders to year-round commuters,” SDOT says. Applicants are asked to submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest via email by August 11, 2017 to Kyle Rowe (email@example.com) with “SBAB” in the subject line. Alternatively, call 206 684-7639 for more details.
