This sort of brings back memories of that newspaper article done a few years
ago on me and how to make my neighborhood of Seattle easier and safer for
walking by putting in more sidewalks.

Help Get Seattleites Walking
Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board seeks new members

SEATTLE-The Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board is accepting applications for 
new members to make Seattle a better place to walk. The goal is to help make

walking safer and easier, and to increase the trips people make by walking 
instead of driving in a car. The volunteer board plays an influential role 
in implementing Seattle's Pedestrian Master Plan, and also advises the Mayor

and City Council, participates in planning and project development, and 
evaluates policies and makes recommendations to all city departments 
including the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).

Board members serve a two-year term with an opportunity to serve a second 
term. They 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 group meets the second

Wednesday of each month from 6 to 8 p.m. at City Hall on Fifth Avenue 
between James and Cherry.

Mayor McGinn and City Council are committed to promoting diversity in the 
City's boards and commissions. Women, youth, persons with disabilities, 
sexual minorities, and persons of color are encouraged to apply.  Interested

persons should submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest by

email by December 17 to Brian Dougherty at 
brian.dougherty at seattle.gov<mailto:brian.dougherty at seattle.gov>.

For more information, call Brian Dougherty at (206) 684-5124, or send e-mail

to the address above.
The pedestrian board members have articulated their vision: "We want Seattle

to become a 'walking city.' People will walk in ever increasing numbers. We 
will want to walk; we will walk safely and with pleasure; we will walk for 
whatever reasons and at whatever times we choose. In Seattle, walking will 
be a way of life..."
