Mayor Greg Nickels is looking for three new volunteers for the city’s Pedestrian Advisory Board.
Residents are invited to apply to serve on a volunteer committee that plays an influential role in implementing Seattle’s Pedestrian Master Plan. The board advises the mayor and City Council, participates in planning and project development, evaluates policies and makes recommendations.
Board members serve a two-year term, with an opportunity to serve a second term. The volunteers are frequent walkers of a variety of ages, levels of mobility and walks of life, and from areas throughout the city. Members must be Seattle residents and may not be city employees.
The PAB meets the second Wednesday of each month from 6 to 8 p.m. at City Hall, 600 4th Ave., between James and Cherry streets. To apply submit by a resume and cover letter explaining your interest to: Brian Dougherty, Seattle Department of Transportation, 700 Fifth Avenue, Suite 3900, P.O. Box 34996, Seattle Washington, 98124-4996, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, by Wednesday, December 16. For more information, call Brian at (206) 684-5124, or e-mail him at the address above.
