VANCOUVER – The city of Vancouver is extending the application deadline for two vacancies on its Planning Commission to 9 a.m. Mon., Sept. 19. Volunteers with interest or experience in community planning, urban design, equitable investment, or housing policy are encouraged to apply. 

The seven-member Planning Commission makes recommendations to Vancouver City Council on topics related to the future growth and development of Vancouver. The city is committed to ensuring the Planning Commission represents diverse community voices with varied lived and professional experiences. Applicants must be Vancouver residents or live in the unincorporated Urban Growth Area just outside city limits. These seats are for mid-term appointments that expire in December 2025, with the option to seek a full, four-year term.

Applicants who are not appointed through this process may be considered for future Planning Commission vacancies for up to one year from the date of their application submission.

Participation in the Planning Commission requires a time commitment of approximately 15 hours per month. This includes regular attendance at meetings held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. All meetings are currently being held as a hybrid with options for in-person and virtual participation.
