Bridgeville Planning and Zoning Commission
Minutes were prepared documenting each hearing and, together with our formal recommendations, were forwarded to the Town Commissioners for their information and use.
Attendance by the Commissioners at our hearings continues to be excellent with no occasion when the Commission was without a quorum.
The Planning and Zoning Commission has been ably supported by the Town staff, particularly Jerry Butler and Peggy Smith, as well as by the Town attorney, Dennis Schrader and, as required, the Town engineer.
On April 9, 2012, Mrs. Sandie Rementer was re-appointed to a three-year term on the Planning and Zoning Commission and on July 9, 2012, Mr. Rob Richey was re-appointed to a three-year term.
Looking forward, and in concert with the Town staff, the Planning and Zoning Commission has established a firm schedule for our hearings in 2013. That schedule is aligned with Bridgeville Commission meetings and should improve the timely forwarding of our recommendations for your consideration.
Through the year Commission members have worked diligently in their role, continuing to learn and implement their duties as prescribed by the Town Code.
The members of the Planning and Zoning Commission appreciate the opportunity to work with the Bridgeville Commission and staff in maintaining the quality of life and character of our Town.
