Let’s Get Seattle Walking

The Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board is accepting applications for several new members to help make walking in Seattle safer and easier.


The volunteer board, which was created by Seattle City Council in 1993, plays an influential role in implementing Seattle’s Pedestrian 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 SDOT.

Currently, the board is looking for candidates for at least three positions. Board members are typically frequent users of our pedestrian network, and represent a variety of ages, levels of mobility, our diverse communities, and reside in neighborhoods throughout the city. Members must be Seattle residents. The board meets the second Wednesday of each month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at City Hall on Fifth Avenue between James and Cherry streets.

The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in the City’s boards and commissions. Women, young persons, seniors, persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, persons of color, immigrants, and refugees are encouraged to apply.

Interested Seattleites should submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest via email by January 27, 2017 to:  Howard Wu at You can also email Howard for more information or give him a call at (206) 684-3902.
