SEATTLE (March 12, 2018) – The Seattle Renters’ Commission (SRC) is seeking two community members to serve on the SRC. Established by ordinance (125280) in March 2017, the SRC advises the City on policies and issues of interest to renters citywide.
The Commission is composed of 15 members – six appointed by City Council, six appointed by the Mayor, and one position is filled by a young adult through the Get Engaged program. The final two commissioners are selected by the SRC, and these are the open positions.
The SRC consists of people living in an array of rental housing types, to include students, low-income renters, LGBTQ renters, people with past felony convictions, people in subsidized housing, and those who have experienced homelessness. The members are also geographically representative of Seattle. SRC meetings are open to the public, and the commissioners serve without compensation.
Those interested in being considered should complete the online application by Monday, April 12 by 5 p.m. If you cannot submit the application online, contact Maureen Sheehan at (206) 684-0302, and an application will be mailed to you or you can pick one up at Seattle Department of Neighborhoods in Seattle City Hall, 600 Fourth Avenue, 2nd floor, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
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 Seattle Renters’ Commission is one of three commissions managed by Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
