Planning Commissioner Sought
There is an opening on the city's Planning Commission for someone who is interested in helping promote innovative planning and development strategies for the city. Planning Commissioners must reflect the wishes of the city's residents (not any special interests!) and advocate for controlled, reasonable growth while protecting residential neighborhoods from predatory development. Can you support and encourage projects that won't negatively impact the city and champion development that will improve quality of life? The Commission is the place for you! It is one of the city's most important boards. Its members are responsible for all new private development in the city. The Commission provides a philosophical direction for overall development. It can suggest modifications, reject or approve projects brought before it. Please contact Mayor Rodney C.Lloyd at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "Planning Commission opening" as the subject line. Thank you!
