NB needs to fill Planning Commission vacancy
Posting Date: 07/30/2014

The Village of North Baltimore has one vacant position on its Planning Commission. Residents of the Village that may be interested in servicing the community in this capacity should contact Mayor Mike Julien, through the Village Hall.

Duties and responsibilities of a Planning Commissioner are listed below:

The Planning Commission shall make plans and maps of the whole or any portion of the Village, and of any land outside of said Village, which, in the opinion of the Commission bears some relation to the planning of the Village, and to make changes in such plans or maps when it deems same advisable. Such maps or plans shall show the Commission’s recommendations for the general location, character, and extent of streets, alleys, ways, viaducts, bridges, waterways, subways, boulevards, parkways, parks, playgrounds, and other public grounds, ways, and open spaces; the general location of public buildings and other public property; the general location and extent of public utilities and terminals, whether publicly or privately owned or operated, for water, light, sanitation, transportation, communication, power, and other purposes; and the removal, relocation, widening, narrowing, vacating, abandonment, change of, use of, or extension of such public ways, grounds, open spaces, buildings, property, utilities, or terminals. With a view to the systematic planning of the Village, the Commission may make recommendations to public officials concerning the general location, character, and extent of any of said public ways, grounds, open spaces, buildings, property, utilities, or terminals. As the work of making the whole plan progresses, the Commission may from time to time adopt and publish a part or parts thereof, and such part to cover one or

more of the aforesaid or other functional matters to be included in the plan. The Commission may from time to time amend, extend, or add to the plan. Nothing herein contained shall be held to confer any powers on the Planning Commission with respect to the construction, maintenance, use, or enlargement of improvements by any public utility or railroad on its own property, if said public utility be owned or operated by an individual, partnership, association, or a corporation for profit.

The Commission shall have the power to control, preserve, and care for historical landmarks; to control, in the manner provided by ordinance, the design and location of statutory and other works of art, which are, or may become the property of the Village; the removal, relocation, and alteration of any such works belonging to the Village; and the design of bridges, viaducts, street fixtures, and other public structures and appurtenances.

Land use planning is a function of municipal government that provides a mechanism for orderly and desirable development as well as preservation of existing desirable physical elements of the Village. The Village Planning Commission is responsible for land use planning, subdivisions, annexations, rezoning recommendations, site plan review and review of development proposals. Business development, historic preservation, and housing are specific areas of land use planning that are addressed by this Commission. The Mayor and Village Administrator serve as focal points for contacts with developers and other communities in the area in developing a plan for “logical” growth. Land Use Planning establishes the methodology to implement a plan that maximizes the efficiency of current and future infrastructure, community resources and other assets and services.
