Planning Commission Volunteer Opportunities

A citizen or owner of a business within the City may be eligible to apply.

Commission Appointments

The Planning Commission consists of five members who serve four-year staggered terms. Appointments are made by the City Council after a City Council interview committee has reviewed applications, held interviews and prepared recommendations for Council consideration.

About Commission Applications & Interviews

A seated Commissioner may apply for reappointment, though all qualified applications (PDF) will be considered.

Public notification about a Commission opening is made through a published newspaper display advertisement.

Once the official application (PDF) period has closed, a City Council committee will arrange interviews with qualified applicants. The committee recommendation is presented to the City Council in early June. New or reappointed Planning Commissioners will be seated at the first regular meeting in July 2014.

Applications (PDF) will be available from the City Clerk's office. For details about the application filing period and interview scheduling, please contact the City Clerk.

For Further Information

Please contact the City Clerk's Office about qualifications or eligibility for service, application forms and related information pertaining to a Planning Commission appointment.
