City planning commission seeks young member for two-year term

Posted by on February 10th, 2014 at 3:43 pm

The City of Portland is looking for a person under age 25 to be a voting member of its prestigious Planning and Sustainability Commission.

Here’s an email from city staffer Susan Anderson:

The City of Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) currently has a vacancy, and we are looking to fill it with a younger member of the community. While PSC terms are usually four years, this youth position (18-25 year old applicants) is designated as a 2-year term, but will have all the same responsibilities and opportunities as other PSC members.

Applications, as for all City commissions, will go through the Office of Neighborhood Involvement. Applications will be reviewed by BPS and Mayor’s office staff. A final selection and appointment will be made by the Mayor.

You can read more about the appointment process in this PDF circulated by the city.
