Several openings will occur next month on two of the City of Fort Morgan’s advisory boards.
One opening will occur on the city’s Planning Commission, which plays a significant role in guiding growth and development in the city. The commission reviews new developments, subdivisions, special use permits and other matters related to land use and development, and makes recommendations to the city council.
Planning Commission members serve six-year terms and must be residents of the city. The opening that will occur next month, however, would be to fill the remainder of the term of a member who recently resigned, and would only run until April 1, 2020. The member who fills that seat could then reapply for a full term.
Three openings will occur on the Historic Preservation Board when the terms of existing members expire. Terms on this board are three years, and the members whose terms are expiring may reapply.
The Historic Preservation Board exists to help preserve and protect the heritage of the city through the identification, evaluation, rehabilitation, adaptive use, restoration and public awareness of Fort Morgan’s historic and architectural resources.
The board members have principal responsibility for matters of historical preservation of historic sites and districts within the municipal boundaries of the city. The board advises and makes recommendations to the City Council on these matters.
Applications for these vacancies are available on the city’s website at www.cityoffortmorgan.com – hover over “Government” on the blue bar across the top of the home page, then click on “City Boards & Commissions” – or at City Hall, 110 Main St. For more information call Jill Westhoff-Curtis in the City Clerk’s Office at 542-3962.
