San Mateo planning seat open to new candidates

A San Mateo County Planning Commission seat is up for grabs, District 3 Supervisor Richard Gordon has announced.

Applications for the District 3 seat on the planning commission will be accepted until Sept. 12 at 5 p.m.

Commissioner Jon Silver, whose term recently expired, had held the seat for 12 years.

“Jon Silver has been an outstanding pubic servant and his knowledge and experiences will be missed,'' Gordon said in a statement. “I will be looking for a candidate who will have the same dedication that Jon has shown — one who understands the delicate balance of development and the environment in San Mateo County.''

Members of the planning commission review the County General Plan and analyze development regulations before making recommendations for their adoption to the County Board of Supervisors.

Applicants for the seat must live within the boundaries of the district.

The successful candidate will serve until Dec. 31, 2010.

Applications can be found at www.co.sanmateo.ca.us under the “Boards and Commissions'' category.
