Are there parts of Magnolia that you wish were more ‘walkable’? The Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board is accepting applications for new members to help make walking in Seattle safer and easier. The volunteer 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.”
Board members must be Seattle residents. They should be “frequent walkers of a variety of ages, levels of mobility, and walks of life, and from areas throughout the city.” Seth Schromen-Wawrin, chair of the Pedestrian Advisory Board says “Making sure our neighborhoods develop in walkable ways is crucial in supporting our businesses, mass transit, community services, and many other aspects of the city. Serving on the Pedestrian Advisory Board is a great way to work with other dedicated residents to help make Seattle the most walkable city.”
Interested walking enthusiasts should submit a resume and cover letter via email by 5 p.m., December 17th to Howard Wu at firstname.lastname@example.org. The board meets the second Wednesday of each month from 6 to 8 p.m. at City Hall on Fifth Avenue between James and Cherry streets. Click here for more details.
