SANATOGA PA – If, as a Lower Pottsgrove resident, you ever wanted to voluntarily serve the community in a non-elective municipal capacity, now’s your chance. The Board of Commissioners wants your resume.
Commissioners must appoint a successor to former township Planning Commission member Joseph Groff, whose resignation they accepted during Monday’s (July 7, 2014) meeting. And they’d like to do it sooner rather than later, they added, because the Planning Commission is expected to consider several project proposals in coming months.
Planners review, can request changes in, and must approve subdivision and land development projects before they are submitted to township commissioners for their review and final approval. With rising interest in the real estate market, more developers have indicated they may move ahead with proposals for properties they own within the township, Solicitor Robert Brant said.
Board meetings are held once monthly on weekday nights, usually the third Monday, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Those interested in applying should write a letter or furnish a resume. Supply your contact information: address, phone numbers, e-mail address. Tell how long you have lived in the township, and why you moved here. Talk about your areas of expertise, and describe activities or organizations in which you’ve participated in the past. Tell why you’re interested in being a Planning Commission volunteer.
Then deliver or mail it to Manager Ed Wagner at the municipal building, 2199 Buchert Rd., Pottstown PA 19464.
