The city of Nevada City announced today that it is accepting applications for the position of planning commissioner. The city’s planning commission is a five-member body comprised of individuals appointed by individual councilmembers. Terms of office run with the appointing councilmember.
The commission reviews and acts on matters related to planning and development. It is not a requirement that an individual have a planning background or experience. The commission serves in an advisory capacity to the city council on planning and development issues. It also assures that the city’s general plan and other planning documents are implemented through the review of development applications on a case-by-case basis. It also is the decision-making body on many proposals before the city.
