The Bellevue City Council is seeking candidates for a vacancy on the Planning Commission. Whoever is appointed will serve the three years remaining on the term of a member stepping down this spring.

At the conclusion of the term – May 31, 2011 – the new member will be eligible for reappointment for an additional four years.

The Planning Commission is an advisory body to the City Council and is responsible for the reviewing and updating the Comprehensive Plan, making recommendations concerning this plan to the City Council. The commission also reviews land use management ordinances and regulations, potential annexations, the Planning Department work program, and holds public hearings as requested by the City Council. The Planning Commission meets on Wednesdays at 7 p.m.

Members of the boards and commissions (with the exception of the Environmental Services Commission) are Bellevue residents. Residents in newly annexed areas are particularly encouraged to apply. Bellevue also values diversity.

Interested citizens may pick up a community service application from the City Clerk’s Office or the Service First desk in City Hall, as well as in the Bellevue Regional Library, the Lake Hills Library and the Mini City Hall at Crossroads Bellevue.

Forms also are available on the city’s website at
