Pittsboro, NC - Chatham County's Board of Commissioners invites residents interested in serving on the Chatham County Planning Board to submit an application to fill several vacancies no later than Friday, December 19, 2014.

The Planning Board advises the Chatham County Board of Commissioners on planning, zoning and subdivision issues. Terms are four years unless filling an unexpired vacancy.

The duties include: monitoring trends related to land use, proposing needed amendments to the land use plan; establishing development principles and guidelines; proposing ordinances for orderly development in accordance with the land use plan; determining whether proposed developments conform to the land use plan and development principles; keeping the Board of Commissioners and the public informed on planning issues and reasons for board recommendations; and conducting meetings to get public input.

The upcoming vacancies are assigned to specific Board of Commissioner districts as follows:

* One seat is an appointment of the full board

* Two seats for Commissioner District 3

* Two seats for Commissioner District 4

* Two seats for Commissioner District 5

* One seat for Commissioner District 1 (a two-year term to fill a mid-term vacancy)

The Planning Board typically meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm, usually in one of the county facilities in Pittsboro.
