Volunteer Needed for Planning Board Vacancy

The board needs a new associate member.

Mayor Gary Christenson is reaching out to Malden residents in an effort to fill the vacancy of Associate Member of the Planning Board.

The nine-member Planning Board is the primary special permit granting authority under the City's zoning ordinance (land use regulations). The Board administers the subdivision control law; acts as Site Plan Review Committee; makes recommendations to the City Council on zoning amendments; and conducts master planning activities.

Planning Board Members are appointed by the Mayor with City Council Confirmation and serve a term of five years. The present vacancy, resulting from a resignation, is to fill an unexpired term which will end on May 1, 2013.  At the discretion of the Mayor the candidate will be reappointed to a full five-year term.

The Planning Board meets the second Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m., Malden Government Center, 200 Pleasant Street, third floor in the Council Chamber, and as necessary.

Please complete the attached Boards and Commissions Application in full, attach your resume and other information which may aid Mayor Christenson and/or the City Council in making their selection, and return by email to: kmanninghall@cityofmalden.org or by mail to Kathleen Manning Hall, Mayor’s Office, Malden City Hall, 200 Pleasant Street, Malden, MA 02148. 

The deadline for accepting Applications is Thursday, January 17th at 4:00 PM.
