The board consists of five elected members and two members who are appointed by the mayor and confirmed by Seattle City Council.
Individuals living in the International District, belong to a community organization or demonstrate active interest in the community, and have an interest in historic preservation are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must be Seattle residents and serve without compensation. Those interested should send a letter of interest and resume to [email protected] by Thursday, May 31.
