Boardman Council Appoints Planning Commissioner


The Boardman City Council appointed Jacob Cain to fill a vacancy on the Boardman Planning Commission during Tuesday’s meeting.

He will finish a three-year term ending Dec. 31, 2016. The Planning Commission is comprised of seven members appointed by the city council and is a permanent advisory body to the council on matters related to planning and development. The commission holds monthly public meetings to consider land use and zoning matters presented by staff, such as plan amendments, zone changes, conditional use permits, variances, and tentative subdivision projects. Meetings are the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at Boardman City Hall and are open to the public.

In other city business, the council heard a presentation from Lisa Mittelsdorf about her fund-raising efforts for building an indoor multi-purpose recreation building for public use. She proposes the city own the building and place it on city property. The council has asked her to bring more details to the next city council meeting. The council also passed an ordinance updating the city’s municipal code regarding property abatement.

The next Boardman City Council meeting will be Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 7 p.m. at the Boardman City Hall Council Chambers.
