The Island County Board of Commissioners is seeking applicants from District 1, which covers South Whidbey to Coupeville, to serve on the Island County Planning Commission.

Members must reside in the district they are appointed to represent.

The board of commissioners appoints planning commission members for four-year terms, which may be renewed by mutual agreement, according to a press release. The position was recently vacated by Karen Krug.

The planning commission consists of nine members, three from each district, to assure county-wide representation. The commission makes recommendations to the board in matters concerning growth and development as authorized in the Planning Enabling Act.

The planning commission meets at 2 p.m. on the second and fourth Monday of each month in the Island County Commissioners Hearing Room in Coupeville. Depending on the agenda, some meetings are held in the evenings or on Camano.

Meetings run two to six 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 resume 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. July 15. For more information, call 360- 679- 7353 or e-mail to pamd@co.island.wa.us
