Volunteers needed to advise on development plans for Seattle Central College

Seattle Central CollegeHere’s your chance to advise the City on development plans of Seattle Central College on Capitol Hill. Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is seeking interested community members from surrounding neighborhoods to participate on the Seattle Central College Standing Advisory Committee (SAC). This committee provides feedback on projects planned and under development by the college to ensure it complies with its Master Plan. The Master Plan describes zoning rules, long range planning of the property, and transportation planning.

Community members who have experience in neighborhood organizing and issues, land use and zoning, architecture or landscape architecture, economic development, building development, medical services, or just an interest in their neighborhood’s future are encouraged to apply. The committee meets 2-6 times a year in the evenings at the campus. Committee members serve a two-year renewable term.

If you are interested in serving on this committee, send a letter of interest by either e-mail or regular mail by Thursday, December 20 to:
