What is the population of the community you work in and how do you folks coordinate reviews of site plans, special permits, etc. with your planning commissions/boards? How many people are on the review board, are they volunteers, and do they need expert advice and assistance from those employed in the planning profession? My guess is that if they are volunteer board members, dealing with reviews once a month, they could benefit from having an in-depth review and objective report on the various projects that are put before them for review. Do you think it would be more beneficial for the board to have an engineer or a planner assist them at their meetings? I know what my answer would be to that - a planner!
