Parks Levy Oversight Committee Needs Members

City Councilmember Sally Bagshaw is seeking candidates to fill three vacancies on the Seattle Parks and Green Spaces Levy Oversight Committee. These three positions are nominated by Councilmember Bagshaw and confirmed by the City Council.

The Parks and Green Spaces Levy was approved by Seattle voters in November 2008 to help implement $145 million worth of projects and programs planned by a citizens’ advisory group. Background information on the levy can be found at http://www.cityofseattle.net/parks/levy/

The Parks and Green Spaces Oversight Committee helps ensure successful implementation of the projects and programs included in the levy. This volunteer oversight committee advises the Parks’ Superintendent, Mayor and City Council on issues related to the levy. The committee meets regularly to:

  • Advise on expenditures and allocations for each budget year;
  • Make recommendations on implementation of particular projects and on any reallocations; and,
  • Provide annual reports to the mayor and City Council on progress of expenditures and prepare a mid-point report to Seattle citizens.

To be considered, please send a letter of interest and resume by January 31, 2011 to Susan Golub, staff to the oversight committee, at susan.golub@seattle.gov. Electronic submissions are preferred.  To send a paper submittal, please address it to:

Susan Golub
Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation

Seattle, WA 98109

Councilmember Bagshaw is committed to promoting diversity in the city’s boards and commissions. Women, persons with disabilities, sexual minorities, and persons of color are highly encouraged to apply. For more information, please contact Susan Golub, at 206-684-7046 or susan.golub@seattle.gov.
