Are there any other citizen planners out there who function without a professional staff? I am a professional planner employed by a city in which I do not live, but am also the Chair of my planning board. The issue we have is that with no professional staff it is difficult to address any issues related to application completeness or really anything at all outside of our official meetings. I do not have the time or energy to serve as planning staff to my own board. I would love to hear from any others who have experience with staff-deprived boards as to how to get things done in a timely manner.
