Roy City is seeking individuals to fill two vacancies on its volunteer planning commission.
The nine-member planning commission (seven full members and two alternates) serve as the authority on land use matters as well as a citizen advisory body, which makes recommendations to the city council on changes to the general plan, city land use ordinance, rezones, and other land use matters.
The Roy City Planning Commission reflects a broad range of neighborhoods, professional and community experience and perspectives, and seeks to be representative of the cultural diversity of the Roy City community. The commission is seeking candidates with interests in community planning, urban design or housing development, and who are residents of the city.
Participation requires a time commitment of approximately 10-15 hours per month. Commissioners prepare for meetings by reviewing a variety of maps and technical information and making site visits. This includes regular attendance at meetings held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, at 6 p.m., at City Hall. Time is spent reviewing materials for each meeting and other pertinent meetings as required.
For information regarding this opportunity, individuals may contact Steve Parkinson, Planning & Zoning Administrator, by phone at 801-774-1027, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail at Roy City Hall, 5051 S. 1900 W., Roy, UT 84067. Interested individuals must submit an Application for Appointment and a current resume.

Just a quick reminder from Public Works:
Roy City Code 4-3-3 says that trees need to be trimmed to allow 13 feet of clearance over the street and 7 1⁄2 feet over the sidewalk. We have noticed throughout the city that there are many trees that are blocking stop signs, sidewalks, and streets. Not only does this not allow access to the street sweeper and garbage trucks, but with winter coming, it is important that these be trimmed back to allow the plows access to push snow curb to curb.
