The city of Apache Junction is seeking applicants for vacancy on the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission. Serving on a board or commission provides an opportunity to work closely with other citizens and the city council to help make decisions about the future of the city.
Board and commission members are appointed by council after submission of an application and a council interview, usually during a work session meeting. Appointments are unpaid and serve a fixed term (terms vary by board and commission).
Appointments to the Planning and Zoning Commission require residency within the city of Apache Junction.
While it is helpful if you have some experience or knowledge about the board or commission on which you wish to serve, the desire to contribute your talents, ideas and opinions to enhance the community is most important. Time commitments vary based on the specific appointment; some meet monthly while others meet on an as-needed basis.
Applications must be submitted online by Nov. 29 and can be found at www.ajcity.net/boards. Additional information on the city’s boards and commissions is also available online. For those who do not have access to a computer, applications can be submitted online using a public computer available at the Apache Junction Public Library, 1177 N. Idaho Rd.
Candidates are scheduled to be interviewed and appointed at council meetings on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. For additional information or assistance please contact the city clerk’s office at (480) 474-5061.
