SEATTLE - Councilmember Sally J. Clark seeks applicants for the Neighborhood Plan Advisory Committee (NPAC), a body recently created to advise and provide input to the neighborhood plan update process. The City Council is responsible for appointing four of the at-large seats on the 24-member committee, and Councilmember Clark is hoping for a great array of voices with a good mix of neighborhood knowledge, new passion, and a commitment to healthy communities. The application deadline is Wednesday, October 15, 2008.

The City Council recently enacted legislation that begins the neighborhood plans update process, and just as in the 1990’s planning effort, a committee formed entirely of Seattle residents and business-people will advise the Department of Neighborhoods (DON) and Department of Planning and Development (DPD) regarding how to best conduct the updating process.The NPAC, DON and DPD will strategize how to conduct effective community outreach, engage underrepresented communities and prioritize planning areas. More information about NPAC’s other responsibilities are available on Councilmember Clark’s website. Terms for the NPAC are one or two years.
