Staff recommends the City Commission appoint four regular members and one alternate to the Planning Commission with terms to expire September 30, 2006 and September 30, 2007.
The City’s Planning Commission consists of seven members plus one alternate, which are appointed by the City Commission.
On September 30, 2006, the terms of three regular members (JoAnn Heim, Chryle Lowery and Roland Stults) and the alternate (Edward Schlein) expired. Additionally, effective January 31, 2007, Larry E. Taylor will resign from the Planning Commission because he is moving outside the city limits (Mr. Taylor’s term will expire September 30, 2007). The City received ten applications in response to the ad placed for Planning Commissioners. Applications were received from: Wylie Hamilton; JoAnn Heim (current member); Chryle Lowery (current member); Don Lukich; Frazier Jerome Marshall; Bessie Rawls; Edward Schlein (current alternate); Roland Stults (current member); Jon M. Vanderley; and, Joyce Williams. The applications are attached.
1. Appoint three of the applicants as regular members and one of the applicants as the alternate to the Planning Commission with terms to expire September 30, 2009; and appoint one of the applicants as a regular member to fill the unexpired term of Larry E. Taylor with term to expire September 30, 2007.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The City of Leesburg 2006-07 budget provides funding to reimburse the Planning Commissioners for serving.
