The Mayor and City Council need YOUR help to volunteer to serve as a member of our Planning Commission, one of our most relied upon citizen resources. The Planning Commission plays a pivotal role in helping to shape our always-evolving development code and works to ensure that Silverton’s future is something we achieve through intentional planning rather than corrective reactions.
The ideal candidate need not be a professional planner, builder, engineer, or any other specific expert by trade (although you can be those things) - the ability to listen, read, learn, and represent your love for our city while respecting the things that do guide our decision making is more than enough.
The Planning Commission meets on the evening of the second Tuesday of each month, and may occasionally hold a work session during the month as well.
If this sounds intriguing to you, we want you to fill out the application by using the following link, and be considered for this valued role. The Mayor will interview candidates and make appointment recommendations to the City Council at the upcoming December meeting.
There’s never been a more important time to add your voice to our future!
