The City Council of the City of Sequim is seeking applicants for two vacancies on the Sequim Planning Commission. Commissioners volunteer their time to serve the Sequim community by advising the City Council on plans, policies, regulations, and capital spending related to growth and development. The Commission may also conduct proceedings on specific land use applications, such as subdivisions.

The Planning Commission meets the first and third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at a virtual location due to the pandemic, with meetings lasting one to two hours. Additional time may be required for other infrequent public meetings and events or special projects as required by the City Council. 

Applicants for positions 1 and 2 will fill four-year terms ending December 31, 2024. Applicants for these positions must be residents of the City of Sequim. The Mayor and Council liaison to the commission, who is currently the Deputy Mayor, shall recommend appointments to the City Council after reviewing applications and conducting interviews.

To apply, go to https://www.sequimwa.gov/223/Planning-Commission, download and complete an application for appointment. Send the completed application, letter of interest and resume to Sara McMillon, City Clerk, at smcmillon@sequimwa.gov or to the Sequim City Clerk’s Office, 152 West Cedar St., Sequim, WA, 98382. Interested persons must submit applications by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, January 18, 2021.

The City of Sequim expresses gratitude for years of service to the community volunteered by former Planning Commissioners Olaf Protze and Roger Wiseman.
