Volunteers needed to advise on development plans for University Of Washington Medical Center, Northwest Campus

Volunteers are needed to serve on a Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) to help develop the new Master Plan for University of Washington Medical Center, Northwest Campus. The committee advises the City of Seattle and the institution on the potential impacts of their campus development on the surrounding neighborhoods. Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is seeking interested neighborhood residents with experience in neighborhood organizations and issues, land use and zoning, architecture, landscaping, economic development, building development or educational services.

A Master Plan includes the types and locations of new physical development on a 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.

CACs generally meet in a hybrid format that accommodates both in-person and virtual attendance. Meetings are held monthly in the evenings on campus for approximately two years or until the Master Plan is completed. More frequent meetings may be necessary at times.

CACs are composed of six to twelve representatives and two to four alternates, including a non-management representative from the associated institution. CAC members serve two-year renewable terms.

If you are interested, please send a letter of interest, and resume by December 16, 2022, to:
