Glenville seeks to fill planning commission vacancies

If you're a Glenville resident that's been wanting to get into town government, here's you're shot.

The Town of Glenville is seeking applicants to fill two vacancies on its Planning and Zoning Commission. Anyone interested in the position must able to regularly attend its two monthly meetings, which include an agenda meeting on the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. and its regular meeting the following Monday at 7 p.m. Also, commission members are expected to stay informed at all times on development related issues in the town.

Here is a portion of the town's call for applicants:

The town website describes the Planning and Zoning Commission as "arguably the most important Town commission with respect to oversight of land development." The PZC is responsible for the review and approval (or denial) of subdivision applications and site plan review proposals. As such, the PZC can influence how and where residential, commercial, and industrial development occur. The PZC consists of seven volunteer members appointed by the Town Board. The terms are for seven years, and are staggered such that one person's term expires each year. Of the current vacancies, one term to be filled is through Dec. 31, 2015, and the other term is through Dec. 31, 2016.

Anyone Interested should submit a letter of interest and resume by Sept. 21 to the town Director of Planning and Economic Development Kevin Corcoran by email at kcorcoran@townofglenville.org.
