Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board seeks 2 new members

Do you love biking? Want to make it easier and safer for people of all ages and abilities to get around Seattle by bike?

Bicycle Sundays are for everyone!

Then this may be the opportunity for you! The Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board (SBAB) is now accepting applications for two new members to help advise the City on the concerns and needs of our growing bicycling community.

Who is SBAB?

The volunteer board was created in 1977 by our City Council and they help carry out Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan – our 20 year blueprint to make it easier to decide to ride a bike. Here are a few other tasks that members do:

  • Advise the Mayor and the City Council
  • Participate in planning and project development
  • Evaluate policies
  • Make recommendations to all city departments
  • Meet every first Wednesday from 6 – 8 PM at Seattle City Hall

 

How do I qualify for this position?

Mayor Murray and the City Council are committed to promoting diversity in all of our boards and commissions. All persons are encouraged to apply. Board members serve a two-year term, with an opportunity to serve a second term. The current board consists of a variety of people who ride bikes, from casual weekend riders to year-round commuters.  Seattle City employees are exempt from being SBAB members .

Where do I sign up?

Follow these steps, and you might be chosen to be one of the new SBAB members:

  • Submit your resume and cover letter (explain your interest) to nicole.freedman@seattle.gov.
  • Use “SBAB” in the subject line
  • No internet access? No problem. Just call Nicole Freedman at (206)684-4690

Thank you for your interest in our bicycling community!
