In response to: Establishing a Planning and Zoning Board posted by Ron Locke on 08 November 1998 at 15:02:06:
There is a good Planning Commissioners Web site which might help. http://www.plannersweb.com/guest.html:
Also, APA has some books and literature on the role of Planning Commissions and Commissioners. They also have a web site.
Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.
Yesterday in our small community, concerned citizens
: gathered to discuss the future of our county. One of the
: issues which evolved from the meeting was the need for a
: Planning and Zoning board. My question is: Where might I
: find information or suggestions on establishing a board in
: a Class 3 community?
: We have identified several critical steps to reach our
: goal starting with developing a position paper on the
: benifits of having a Planning and Zoning Board for
: presentation to the county commissioners. While the
: individuals at our meeting represented a cross section of
: the county we fully expect a battle and want to prepare a
: strong offense going in. Any advice on establishing a PZB
: would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
