Winter Park residents interested in being a member of the town planning commission should apply now.

The spot became available when Jim Myers was named mayor by the Town Council April 15. The Town Charter prohibits the mayor from serving on both boards.

Current members include Chairperson Dick Norman, Brad Holzwarth, Mike Periolat, Katie Riemenschneider, David Michel and Jonathon Larson.

The town’s planning commission and council will select a candidate to serve on the board. There is not an interview process, but candidates usually attend the board meetings, and members will ask them questions, Nelson said.

The next meeting is at 8 a.m. May 13 at Town Hall.

The planning commission is in charge of a master plan for the physical development of the town, including areas outside its boundaries.

The board meets the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at 8 a.m. in Town Hall.
