:: Call for Candidates ::

Eastsound Water Users Board

Joe Cohen chairs the Eastsound Water Users Association and reached out with the following opportunity:

On October 29th, 2019 three seats will be up for election on the Eastsound Water Users Board. Two seats will be sought by incumbents and one is totally open. The commitment is once a month attendance at the board meeting from 5-7pm on the third Tuesday of the month.

Things to know:

Additional committee work of 2 or 3 hours per month can be anticipated.

The position is unpaid.

You must be an EWUA member.

There are currently no women on the board, which is why Joe approached us to recruit candidates. This is a nice opportunity to work with a very competent board and staff on an issue of utmost importance to the community. It would be good to get at least two women on the board if possible, but one for sure!


San Juan COUNTY Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is an essential part of the public process and community planning. State laws require each county to have a group of citizen advisors to address land use matters. The planning commission is a group of citizen volunteers appointed by the Board of County Commissioners who make recommendations to the Board on planning decisions. Workshops and public hearings of the Planning Commission are an important public forum where public opinion and advice becomes part of the County’s records and decision making process.

Meetings and topics are listed in the newspaper, on the County website, and are posted at post offices and libraries of the affected communities before the meeting is held. Study documents and proposed actions are available at the Community Development and Planning Department, and may be found on this web site under Current Projects, or Planning Commission. Long range Planners provide support for the Planning Commission meetings by writing staff reports that review changes to plans and the development code, and for taking Planning Commission recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners.
