Planning Commission Position Openings


There are two openings on the Planning & Zoning Board. Ed Erickson has been on the P&Z Board since April of 2018 and Gunnar Johnson has been on the Board since April 2015. We want to thank these two men who have faithfully served our community at this volunteer position for so many years.
If you are interested in serving on the Planning & Zoning Board please contact the Town Clerk at 721-3158 and request a Candidate Profile form. The P&Z Board will review the forms that are received and make a recommendation to the Town Board. The Town Board will review the recommendations and by a resolution appoint the two Board Members to fill the position until the terms run out in 2021. The terms would then run for a three-year term, coming up for re-appointment in March 2021.

Qualifications to be on the Gnesen P&Z Board:
1.) Members shall reside in and be registered voters of the Town of Gnesen.
2.) Members shall serve without pay but may be reimbursed for expenses pertaining to Planning Commission Business upon receiving
prior authorization and approval by resolution of the Town Board.
3.) Attend one meeting a month on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m.
4.) Attend the annual gravel pit inspection.
5.) Visit the property when a Variance Request has been received
6.) Become knowledgeable in the zoning process and the rationale of the Land Use Ordinance.
7.) Have the ability to think fairly and objectively.

Knowledge of the community and its governmental process would be helpful, but is not a requirement.
