Do you see cycling as the solution to some of the world’s most complicated problems? Do you enjoy free parking?😬 Maybe you have some serious cycling knowledge you’d like to share? If you answered yes to
all most of the questions, then you should join:
The Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board (SBAB)
– you might be exactly who we’re looking for!
What’s & who’s the SBAB?
The SBAB is a volunteer board created by the Seattle City Council in 1977 that plays an influential role in implementing Seattle’s Bicycle 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, yours truly, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).👍👍
Getting into SBAB gear:
When you’re on the board, you’ll advise the City on the concerns and needs of our thriving bicycling community. Board members serve a two-year term and if you love it, you can even serve a second term! Current members represent all types of bicyclists and skill levels, from casual weekend riders to year-round commuters. The board meets the first Wednesday of each month from 6-8 PM at Seattle City Hall.
You’ll also represent our city! More specifically:
- Different user groups including persons with disabilities, senior and school-age citizens, and recreational and commuter bicyclists.
- Different geographical locations throughout the city.
- Interested private citizens concerned with urban bicycling issues.
- Bicycling organizations or clubs.
- Schools, businesses, and neighborhood organizations.
- Organizations concerned with bicycling safety.
