The Northwest Design Review Board, the group responsible for approving future developments, has two volunteer positions available starting next spring. Mayor Mike McGinn is looking for a design professional representative to replace Bill Singer and a local business representative to replace Mark Brands. Each representative serves a two-year term and can expect to work 12-14 hours each month attending and preparing for board meetings.
Board members must live in the city. Following appointment, the local residential interests representative must act as an ambassador to at least one community group or association (e.g. community council) that operates within the board district. Similarly, following appointment the local business interests representative must act as an ambassador to at least one business group or association (e.g. chamber of commerce) that operates within the board district. Acting as an ambassador is often facilitated if the board member lives or works within the district he or she is serving, but residency in a district is not a requirement to serve as a local representative.
Applications are due December 10th of this year for the terms which begin April 4, 2011. Application forms are available here or from email@example.com
