Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board
Letter Writing Policy
All members of the Board are encouraged to participate in the advisory process. Members will gain recognition from letter recipients and solidify their views on Board issues by composing advisories on topics which they have been monitoring.
This policy is intended as a method of standardizing correspondence from the board and encouraging more widespread responsibility for drafting them. It is not meant to limit membersf actions or place one or two members in a position to act as the voice of the Board.
Time-critical letters may not allow for the complete review process. Some members may feel confident of their knowledge of the issue at hand, and concerned about timeliness of follow-up or advisory letters. In these cases, as much of the process should be followed as possible. At minimum, copies of the dispatched letter should be presented at the next SPAB meeting, and via email.
