Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board seeks new members – Apply by Jan 26

Let’s get Seattle walking!

Are you interested in making it safer and easier to walk in Seattle? We’re currently accepting applications for new members of the Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board (SPAB), to fill at least three positions. Each position serves a two-year term on the board. The volunteer board plays an influential role in achieving Seattle’s Pedestrian Master Plan vision to become the most walkable and accessible city in the nation. As a board member, you would advise the Mayor and City Council, participate in planning and project development, evaluate policies, and make recommendations to city departments, including the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).

Board members are 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. Board members meet on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Seattle City Hall (600 4th Ave).

Board members shall serve voluntarily. On a case-by-case basis, we will offer bus tickets for board members to get to board meetings.

The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in our boards and commissions. People of color, low-income communities, immigrant and refugee populations, people living with disabilities, people experiencing homelessness, LGBTQ people, women and girls, youth, seniors and Native Populations are encouraged to apply.
