Board volunteers needed

BLYTHEWOOD – The Town of Blythewood has vacancies on three government boards and is seeking volunteers to fill the positions.

“It’s a great way to serve your community,” Mayor J. Michael Ross said. “We have many individuals who, each year, dedicate their time and expertise to shape the future of boards and commissions and nonprofit organizations in our town through board service. Board members provide the critical intellectual capital and strategic resources necessary to strengthen communities,” Ross said.

The current vacancies include: Planning Commission – 1 vacancy; Board of Zoning Appeals – 2 vacancies and Board of Architectural Review- 1 vacancy.

The planning commission makes recommendations to Town Council on zoning and annexation issues; reviews and approves all new subdivisions and is involved in comprehensive planning to improve the health and welfare of the public.

The board of zoning appeals reviews land use issues, including proposed variations from the Town’s zoning ordinance; special uses that require review to determine compatibility with adjacent properties and appeals of decisions made by the zoning administrator.

The board of architectural review reviews applications for certificates of appropriateness in the Town Center and Architectural Overlay zoning districts.
