Placer County accepting applications from District 5 for open Planning Commission seat

Published Jan. 11, 2023

Placer County District 5 Supervisor Cindy Gustafson is seeking applications from experienced and engaged residents within Supervisorial District 5 to fill an open Placer County Planning Commission seat.

Acting as the principal advisory body to the Placer County Board of Supervisors, the Planning Commission holds public hearings and makes recommendations on proposed general plans, studies and zoning text amendments, reviews and makes decisions on major land development proposals and encourages citizen leadership and participation in the planning process.

The commission is composed of seven members, one from each supervisorial district, and two at-large members, one from the east and west sides of the Sierra Crest.

This open commission seat will represent District 5, which extends from Ophir and the City of Auburn through the foothills and as far northeast as Kings Beach. Applicants must live within District 5 for their candidacy to qualify. The commission meets twice a month on the second and fourth Thursdays. The selected applicant will serve four years and be compensated with a $100 monthly per diem along with reimbursement for additional expenses as necessary.

To apply, please click here and submit your application to the Clerk of the Board. The application period will remain open until the seat is filled. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.
