SDOT searching for an Active Transportation Program Manager
Here’s a pretty awesome job listing from the City of Seattle. They’re looking for someone to help increase the number of people biking, walking and taking transit. Sounds like a good goal to me. Details:
The program manager will steer a matrix-managed team to deliver projects, programs and encouragement strategies that increase the number of trips accomplished by walking, biking and transit; increase safety and efficient mobility for non-motorized users; create active public spaces; and advance the City’s greenhouse gas reduction goals.
This position will report to the Mobility Programs Manager within the Policy and Planning (P&P) Division. The division shapes Seattle’s present and future transportation system to create healthy communities, support a thriving economy, improve our environment, and empower people by offering safe, efficient, and equitable choices for how and when to travel. We’re a team of inquisitive and collaborative planning professionals dedicated to meeting the needs and expectations of the public we serve through creative, cost-effective and practical solutions.
The Seattle Bike Expo is dead
It’s true. From Cascade:
After 24 years, Cascade Bicycle Club has decided to not continue producing the Seattle Bike Expo.
Due to the decline in attendance over the last few years, we made the difficult decision to not continue with Expo as is and reinvest our time and resources in creating new opportunities for people to ride. We may revisit the Expo in a different format in the future.
