Volunteers needed to advise on development plans for Kaiser Permanente

Here’s your chance to advise the City on the development plans of the Kaiser Permanente campus. Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is seeking interested community members from surrounding neighborhoods to participate on the Kaiser Permanente Standing Advisory Committee (SAC). This committee provides feedback on projects planned and under development by the hospital to ensure it complies with its Master Plan. The Master Plan describes zoning rules, long range planning of the property, and transportation planning.

Community members who have experience in neighborhood organizing and issues, land use and zoning, architecture or landscape architecture, economic development, building development, medical services, or just an interest in their neighborhood’s future are encouraged to apply.

The committee meets in the evenings at the campus four to six times a year. Committee members serve a two-year renewable term. If you are interested in serving on this committee, send a letter of interest by either e-mail or regular mail by Monday, July 30 to:
