Construction Codes Advisory Board
Mayor Murray is seeking candidates for three vacant positions on Seattle’s Construction Codes Advisory Board. The current open positions are for representatives of the following professions or categories:
Developers or Contractors of Residential Properties’
The Board is a 13-member body that works together to research, analyze, and make recommendations to the Mayor, City Council, and the Department of Planning and Development on the technical codes affecting buildings in Seattle. The Board plays an important role in shaping the codes Seattle adopts and how these codes are interpreted. In addition to the Board’s advisory role to City officials, the Board hears appeals of DPD’s building code decisions. The work requires attention to detail of highly technical codes. The City relies on the Board members’ professional experience and opinions in determining which codes to adopt and to amend.
Board members will be asked to prepare for and attend meetings on the first and third Thursdays at noon in downtown Seattle. The actual frequency of meetings depends on the Board’s workload, and there may be some months without any meetings or only one meeting a month. Strong candidates will be civic-minded, critical thinkers interested in the design and construction of Seattle’s built environment. Individuals selected must have perspective, experience and talents that will enhance the Board. Successful candidates will have a willingness to devote two to six hours a month to Board meetings and other Board duties.
These positions are voluntary and are appointed by Mayor Murray and confirmed by the City Council. Applicants must live, work or do business in Seattle. City employees are not eligible to be Board members. The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in the city’s boards and commissions. Women, persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, young persons, senior citizens, persons of color, and immigrants are encouraged to apply.
The application period opens on Wednesday, October 1 and remains open until Monday, November 3, 2014.
If you have a question or would like to request a paper application, please contact Julie A. Hines, Staff Liaison and Code Development Analyst at DPD. She can be reached by phone at (206) 233-2766 or by email at Julie.email@example.com
