City Accepting Applications for Planning Commission

Due to the resignation/retirement of long-time Planning Commissioner, Carl Webb, the City is
accepting applications for the open position on the Planning Commission. Planning
Commissioners are appointed by the City Council to review matters related to planning and
development. Recent issues have included the General Plan Update; a service station
expansion; commercial cannabis; large family day-care centers; commercial signage; and much
more. Upcoming issues anticipated for discussion at the Planning Commission include
additional commercial cannabis considerations; proposed motel expansion plans; proposed
transitional housing; a proposed market-rate housing project; and an update to the City’s
Zoning Code and Design Review manual.

According to City Manager, Greg Folsom, “Commissioner Carl Webb was a part of the Planning
Commission for many years and his leadership will be sorely missed. We are looking for
residents who have an interest in the growth of Clearlake, and want to be involved in land use
decisions as we move forward. This is a great time to be a part of the Planning Commission.
The Big 5 and Tractor Supply Company projects are being built out and development interest in
our city is starting to increase.”

The Planning Commission meets on the first and third Tuesdays. Applicants must be a resident
of the City of Clearlake in order to be appointed to the Planning Commission. Applications will
be accepted until 5pm on Wednesday, August 1st, and the Council will consider appointing an
applicant at the August 9th Council agenda. Applications are available at City Hall or on the
City’s website at:
