Introduction and Applicant Information

Thank you for your interest in the Community Involvement Commission. As Seattle’s population grows and changes, the City needs to continually revisit and expand its public engagement efforts to ensure growing demographic groups are represented in the City’s decision-making processes and that barriers discouraging people from participating are eliminated.

In July 2016, Mayor Murray signed Executive Order 2016-06 reaffirming his commitment to advance effective implementation of equitable and inclusive engagement strategies across all City departments. This new commission will advise the City on policies and strategies to advance equitable public engagement and civic participation.
