Applicants Sought for Penrose Seat on Planning Commission

The Fremont County Board of Commissioners is accepting letters of interest from citizens wishing to fill a vacancy on the Fremont County Planning Commission.    One seat on the seven-member Planning Commission is open following a recent resignation.   In the past this seat has represented the Penrose area.   The person appointed will serve the remainder of a three term which expires on December 31, 2016, and would then qualify for reappointment.

The Planning Commission meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. to review land use proposals, such as subdivisions, zone changes, and use permits.   The Commission then makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners which makes the final decision.

Any citizen interested in serving can apply for the Planning Commission vacancy although the Board of Commissioners may show preference to appoint someone to represent the Penrose area.   Persons interested in an appointment to the Planning Commission should state their qualifications and reasons for wanting to serve in a letter.   Submit it by mail or in person to the County Commissioners at 615 Macon Avenue - Room 106, Canon City, Colorado 81212.   The deadline for letters is 12 noon, Tuesday, December 22nd.
