UPDATED: October 28, 2019

The City of Seattle is seeking community members to help develop the new Master Plan for Seattle Pacific University (SPU) to guide the school’s future development. Volunteers would serve on a Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) which is made up of neighborhood residents with experience in neighborhood organizations and issues, land use and zoning, architecture, landscaping, economic development, building development or educational services who will work with the City and SPU. 

The Master Plan includes the types and locations of new physical development on campus and establishes guidelines for the design of future development. It also includes a Transportation Management Plan, along with other actions to reduce negative impacts of proposed development on the neighborhood.

The Advisory Committee will meet monthly in the evening for approximately two years or until the Master Plan is completed. More frequent meetings may be necessary at times.

If you are interested, please send a resume and letter describing your interest in being on this Committee by September 30 October 31 to:

Nelson Pesigan
Mailing Address: Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, P.O. Box 94649, Seattle, WA 98124-4649

Please make sure to include your address. For additional information, contact Nelson Pesigan at 206-684-0209.

The Major Institutions and Schools Program provides a way for neighbors of Seattle’s hospitals, universities, and colleges to be directly involved in the development plans for those institutions to ensure neighborhood concerns are considered when those plans are made. It is a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in its boards and committees; women, young adults, senior citizens, persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, persons of color, and immigrants are highly encouraged to apply.
