Maple Valley accepting applications for planning commissioners

The Maple Valley City Council is recruiting individuals who are interested in serving as commissioners or alternates on the Planning Commission.

The duties of the planning commissioner include attending meetings and making recommendations to the city council on land use issues and revision to the city's development regulations. Alternate planning commissioners must also attend meetings so that they are prepared to fill an unanticipated vacancy.

The commission meets from 6:30-8:30 p.m. the first and third Wednesdays of each month, with occasional special meetings and workshops.

To qualify for this appointment, individuals must be residents of, or own property in, the city of Maple Valley. Applicants should have an interest in environmental affairs, planning, land use, and residential and commercial development as evidenced by training, experience, or actions. The term of office for a planning commissioner is four years and two years for an alternate.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on Monday, March 24. Interviews will be scheduled shortly thereafter. Applications may be picked up at City Hall, located at 22017 SE Wax Road, Suite 200, or accessed through the city's website at Click on City Government, then click on Citizen, Boards, Commissions and Committees, then click on Position Openings.

Questions should be directed to Bonnie Barney, deputy city clerk, or Steve Clark, director of public works and community development at 425-413-8800.
