Planning Commission is Growing

The Guilford Planning Commission is upsizing from five to seven members. Why? The Commission is entering a 9-month community planning project that will engage the community broadly about what makes Guilford special, now and into the future.

Working together, the Selectboard and the Planning Commission seek a broad representation of the town’s voices to lead this planning effort. Planning Commission members serve staggered 3-year terms. With the addition of two new members and the departure of Mike Szostak (thanks for your service, Mike!), three new members will be appointed. The Planning Commission generally meets once per month, on the second Wednesday evening of the month. 

It is the Selectboard that makes appointments to most of Guilford’s Commissions (not the Cemetery Commission, which is elected). The Selectboard will work closely with the Planning Commission for this planning project, and is invested in building  the strongest possible team for Guilford. 

If you have personal interest or strong recommendations, send your name (or suggested person’s name) and contact info, along with a brief bio and a 3-sentence statement about why service would be important, to zoneastes@guilfordvt.gov.
