The Fairhaven Planning Board currently has a vacancy following the recent resignation of one of the eight members.
This elected position will be on the ballot in 2019, but in the interim, the Planning Board and Board of Selectmen must appoint someone to fill the vacancy until the next election. This appointment would end in 2019, when the person holding the office would have to run to finish out the full remainder of the term, which ends in 2021.
The Planning Board is responsible for the review of development applications for subdivisions and special permits, as well as long-range planning for the Town, including the recently completed Master Plan, Zoning Bylaw amendments, and recommendations on housing. The Board also sends representatives to other town committees, such as the Community Preservation Committee and the Economic Development Committee.
Anyone interested in serving on the Planning Board should submit a letter of interest to the Town Clerk by June 22, Eileen@fairhaven-ma.gov, or 40 Center Street, Fairhaven, MA 02719.
