Since Spokane Valley planning commissioner Arne Woodard was appointed to the Spokane Valley City Council last week, that means there is now an opening for a new planning commissioner. An application for the position can be found at www.spokanevalley.org or picked up at City Hall. The application deadline is 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3.
The commission reviews land use rules, development regulations and other city laws and makes recommendations to the city council after holding public hearings. The commission generally meets twice a month. Applicants must live within the Spokane Valley city limits. The Mayor will nominate a person to replace Woodard and that person must be confirmed by the city council. The term of the vacant seat expires Dec. 31.
