Female planners | Letters

To the San Juan County Council:

The San Juan County Planning Commission is comprised of nine men, even though the majority of our county’s population is female. SJC has one of the few planning commissions in Washington state, comprised entirely of men.

SJC Planning Commissioners are appointed by the SJC Council. As required by state law and county code, the planning commission provides public process, holds public hearings and makes recommendations to the council regarding land use regulations and the comprehensive plan.

We ask the council to appoint women and other members of the community who represent our county’s demographics to the planning commission.
