Get involved! Parks levy oversight committee needs members

We’re seeking candidates to fill three vacancies on the Seattle Parks and Green Spaces Levy Oversight Committee.  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

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 at Electronic submissions are preferred.
