County seeks planning commissioners

The Island County Board of Commissioners is seeking applicants from District 1 — Whidbey Island south of the greater Oak Harbor area — and District 3 — north of Oak Harbor and all of Camano Island — to serve on the Island County Planning Commission for terms that expire January 2, 2018. Members must reside in the district they are appointed to represent.

The Board of County Commissioners appoints Planning Commission members for four-year terms. The Planning Commission consists of nine members, three from each commissioner district, to assure county-wide representation.

The Planning Commission generally meets the second and fourth Tuesdays, beginning at 9 a.m. in the Courthouse Annex Hearing Room, Coupeville.

Depending on the agenda, some meetings are held in the evenings and/or on Camano. Meetings run 2 to 6 hours or more depending on the complexity of the agenda. Preparation and research is necessary. Service on the Planning Commission is unpaid; however, members may obtain reimbursement for travel expenses to and from meetings.

Interested individuals should send a letter of interest including a statement of qualifications and a resumé to: Island County Board of Commissioners, Attn: Pam Dill, Re: Planning Commission Vacancies, P.O. Box 5000, Coupeville, WA 98239, no later than 4:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 30. For more information, call 360-679-7353 or email
