The Clinton Community Council is seeking two to three members to fill open positions on its board.
The council, which is composed of five at-large members and representatives from nine different Whidbey organizations, has been notable for its dedication to improving pedestrian safety and accessibility in Clinton since its inception nearly a decade ago.
Most recently, the council helped provide input to Island County for the Clinton Gateway Plan, which addresses “traffic-calming” measures and priorities for development in the area.
“It’s good to see new people involved and new ideas,” said Doug Hofius, president of the council’s board.
To be eligible to serve on the council, people must be Clinton residents and own a business or property there.
Hofius added that the council is also looking to fill officer positions.
Board member terms run three years. The council meets once a month on the fourth Monday 6-7:30 p.m., currently on Zoom.
“We’ve been real successful to date and I’m real pleased with the progress we’ve made,” Hofius said of the council.
Board members are hoping candidates will come forward to fill the empty spots by the council’s January meeting.
