Mayor Mike McGinn is looking for a transportation engineer or transportation planner to serve on the Seattle Design Commission.
The transportation engineer or planner would provide advice as a member of the commission on plans for new public projects such as fire stations, parks, and streetscapes; on private projects that affect the city’s right-of-way; and on major projects that affect the whole city, such as the waterfront and light rail stations.
The ten member commission includes architects, urban designers, environmental designers, urban planners, landscape architects, engineers, an artist, a member‐at‐large, and one member from Get Engaged, the YMCA Young Civic Leaders Program.
Established in 1968, the Seattle Design Commission advises city officials on design and environmental aspects of capital improvement projects. Members also help select consultants for City projects. The Commission meets all day on the first and third Thursdays of each month. In addition, members serve on project subcommittees and represent the commission on other advisory boards. Members volunteer an average of 20 to 25 hours a month.
