Planning Commission
Last Update:  25 March 2017

horizontal rule

The Planning Commission of the Town of Beaux Arts is its advisory body on land-use issues.  The Commission consists of five Commissioners, all of whom are residents of the Town, are appointed by the Mayor and are confirmed by the Town Council.  Commissioners are volunteers who serve six-year terms and are eligible for re-appointment without term limits.

Current members of the Planning Commission are:

Position No. 1 Jeff Kendall (term expires in 2018)
Position No. 2 Paula Dix (term expires in 2020)
Position No. 3 Hans Juhle (term expires in 2021)
Position No. 4 Kim Moloney  (term expires in 2022)
Position No. 5 Aletha Howes (term expires 2017)

MEETINGS
Regular Planning Commission meetings are held at 7:00pm on the third Thursday of each month, except in the months of July, August, and December, though they may meet during those months if their workload requires it.  Because Beaux Arts has no Town Hall, Commissioners take turns hosting the monthly meetings in their homes.  The monthly meeting host acts as that meeting's chair.  A meeting agenda listing the topics to be discussed and the meeting location is posted on mailstands throughout the Village about one week in prior to the meeting.  Any Villager may offer their home as a meeting location.

Special meetings may be held from time to time as needed.  Notices and agendas for special meetings are posted on mailstands at least 24 hours before the meeting and on the Agendas & Public Notices page of this website.  The location of each special meeting is listed on the agenda for that meeting.

ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The Planning Commission's role is to assist the Town Council in matters related to land use and zoning, including reviewing the Town's Comprehensive Plan, studying current issues related to land use or zoning, developing ordinance language in response to these issues, conducting preliminary public hearings on proposed ordinances to ensure public involvement in the rule-making process, writing findings of fact based on the public hearings, and making recommendations to the Town Council based upon those findings.  The Planning Commissions' bylaws outline these duties in detail. 

Government in Beaux Arts is truly grass roots.  Villagers are encouraged to attend all meetings and speak on issues of concern to them.  Villagers who cannot attend a meeting may submit written comments for the Planning Commission's consideration by mailing them to the Town's mailing address (see General Information), emailing Deputy Clerk Angela Kulp at bldgdept@beauxarts-wa.gov or calling 425.269.6985 to make arrangements for transmitting their comments by other means.
