The Seattle Freight Advisory Board (SFAB) is accepting applications for new members. The volunteer board, which was created by the Seattle City Council in 2010, will play an important role in developing Seattle’s Freight Master Plan. The board advises the Mayor, City Council and City departments on the development of a functional and efficient freight system, and on all matters related to freight and the impact that actions by the City may have on the freight environment.
Board terms are two years, with an opportunity to serve a second term. Members should live in Seattle or represent a business or organization that has a significant presence in Seattle, and may not be city employees. The board meets the third Tuesday of each month from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Seattle City Hall.
Mayor Murray and the City Council are committed to promoting diversity in the City’s boards and commissions. Women, youths, seniors, persons with disabilities, sexual minorities and persons of color are encouraged to apply.
Interested persons should submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest via email by April 30, 2014, to Christopher.Eaves@seattle.gov with “SFAB” in the subject line. Interested persons without internet access may call 206-684-7583.
