Volunteers needed to advise on development plans for Swedish Medical Center – Cherry Hill Campus

Volunteers are needed to serve on the Implementation Advisory Committee (IAC) to provide feedback on projects planned and under development by Swedish Medical Center, Cherry Hill Campus. This 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 consensus building, community organizing, land use and zoning, architecture or landscape architecture, economic development, real estate development, and educational or medical services.

The Implementation Advisory Committee generally meets in a hybrid format that accommodates both in-person and virtual attendance. Meetings are held monthly in the evenings at the Swedish Cherry Hill campus unless otherwise noted.  More frequent meetings may be necessary at times.

The committee is composed of six to twelve representatives, including a non-management representative from the associated institution. Committee members serve two-year renewable terms.

If you are interested, please send a letter of interest, and resume by Friday, April 28, 2023, to:
