News Release - Town Council Accepting Applications to Fill Vacancies on the Planning Commission

PURCELLVILLE, Va. – November 22, 2022 — The Purcellville Town Council is seeking applicants to fill vacancies on the Planning Commission. The terms will be for four years beginning in January 2023. The Purcellville Planning Commission meets the first and third Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM at Town Hall.

 

Every local government in Virginia is required to have a Planning Commission “in order to promote the orderly development of the locality and its environs” (Code of Virginia, Section 15.2-2210). The Purcellville Planning Commission is a seven-member body of Town residents that are appointed by the Town Council to advise the Council on matters relating to Town planning and development. The Commission also develops and recommends updates to the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, which outlines the Town’s vision for its future and strategies for attaining that future. The Commission also reviews and makes recommendations on updates to the Town’s zoning and development related regulations that help to implement the Comprehensive Plan. 

 

If you are town resident and interested in serving on the Planning Commission, please complete the online application. A member of staff will be in touch with you to schedule your interview with the Town Council. Interviews are expected to take place in January 2023.
