HELP GET SEATTLE WALKING
Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board seeks new members

SEATTLE-The Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board is accepting applications for
new members to help make walking in Seattle safer and easier.  The volunteer
board, which was created by Seattle City Council in 1993, 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 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. 

According to Jon Morgan, chair of the Pedestrian Advisory Board ""Everyone
is a pedestrian, and serving on the Pedestrian Advisory Board is a great way
to make a difference in Seattle's walkability.  Members have a chance to
learn a lot about walking and what's going on in the city, and to apply that
knowledge working with other smart, dedicated, interesting pedestrian
advocates."

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
via email by January 20, 2012 to Brian Dougherty at
brian.dougherty at seattle.gov. 

For more information, call Brian Dougherty at (206) 684-5124, or send e-mail
to the address above.
