Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board Seeks New Board Members

The City's  Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board (SPAB) is accepting applications for new members to help make walking in Seattle safer and easier.  The board meets the second Wednesday of each month from 6-8pm at City Hall on Fifth Avenue between James and Cherry streets.

The information says:

The volunteer Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board was created by the Seattle City Council in 1993 and plays an influential role in implementing Seattle’s Pedestrian Master Plan to achieve our vision to become the most walkable and accessible city in the nation.  
The board advises the Mayor and City Council, participates in planning and project development, evaluates policies, and makes recommendations to all city departments including the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT). 
At least two positions are currently open. Board members are typically 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.  
Interested citizens should submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest via email by January 26th to: Howard Wu at

For more information, contact Howard Wu at or call (206) 684-3902.
