SANDPOINT — The Bonner County Planning & Zoning Commission has open seats in all districts.

Those interested in serving on the commission are encouraged to submit letters of interest to the Bonner County Planning Department for review and appointment by the board of county commissioners.

The deadline to submit a letter is 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 17.

Residents who have lived in the county for at least two years are eligible to serve on the panel. They must continue to reside here during the duration of their term.

Members are selected without respect to party affiliation and may receive mileage and per diem compensation. Members can serve two terms with further terms requiring a two-thirds vote of the board to continue.

The planning commission reviews and hears simple to complex land use applications that require reading and understanding of codes and state laws. The commission reviews and updates the county’s comprehensive land-use plan, conducts public hearings, provides means to obtain citizen participation in land-use matters, considers permit requests and code amendments.

The planning commission holds two meetings each month, with one for public hearings and another planning workshop. The meetings are typically held on the first and third Thursday of the month beginning at 5:30 p.m. Meetings are held at the Bonner County Administration Building in Sandpoint.

Letters of interest may be submitted to the Bonner County Planning Department, 1500 U.S. Highway 2, Suite 208, Sandpoint, ID. 83864.
