SBAB in Action!

Have you ever wanted to get involved in shaping Seattle’s future pedestrian and bicycle system?  Then SPAB or SBAB may be right for you. 

SPAB, otherwise known as the Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board, is a committee of volunteers that advises the Mayor, City Council, and SDOT on the city’s pedestrian programs, projects, and policies.  The board participates in the planning of projects big and small – from new sidewalk projects to the Alaskan Way Viaduct Project.  One of SPAB’s greatest responsibilities is supporting the implementation of the Pedestrian Master Plan

The board’s meetings are open to the public so come down to City Hall to see what SPAB is doing to make Seattle the most walkable city in the nation.  SPAB meets the second Wednesday of each month from 6 to 8 p.m. in City Hall room L280.  SPAB will be looking for new members in 2010.  Check out their website for more information.

SBAB, or the Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board, also advises the Mayor, Council, and SDOT on matters related to bicycle facilities, safety, access, and mobility.  Board members rely on their experiences as cyclists to achieve their goal of making Seattle a world-class city for bicycling.  The bike board contributes to project development, evaluates city policies, design guidelines and regulations, and supports the implementation of the Bicycle Master Plan.

Meetings are open to the public and are held from 6 to 8 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every month in room L280 in City Hall.  SBAB will also be recruiting new members in 2010.  See their website to find out how to get engaged.
