Mayor seeks candidates for Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board
The board consists of 11-members who serve two year terms in a volunteer capacity. The Board’s primary role is to advise the Mayor, City Council and all departments and offices of the City on matters related to bicycling and on the impact actions by the City may have upon bicyclists.
More specifically, board members seek to improve safety, access, and mobility for bicyclists by contributing to the planning and project development phases of pertinent projects and by evaluating and recommending changes in City policies, design guidelines and regulations.
Individuals selected must have perspective, experience, and talents which will enhance the Board’s expertise and effectiveness. If you are interested in being considered, send a letter of interest and resume which demonstrates your knowledge, experience, and insight of current issues.
Applicants must reside within the City of Seattle. The Board meets the first Wednesday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Those interested in being considered should send a letter of interest and resume by August 31 to:
