Historical NoteReturn to Top

The fifteen member Seattle Center Advisory Commission was established in 1962 following the Seattle World's Fair to advise the Center administration, the Mayor, and the City Council on policy and operations issues related to the Seattle Center. The Commission provides independent assessment of operations, performance, plans, and policies affecting the regional cultural and recreational facility. The Commission plays an active role in developing and monitoring master planning, fundraising, and public programming. A predecessor body, the Civic Center Commission, was established in 1956 to oversee establishment of a civic center in Seattle based around several facilities that were later incorporated into the World's Fair grounds and ultimately the Seattle Center.
