Councilmember Seeks Applicants for Board of Zoning Adjustments

Newly re-elected San Leandro District 6 Councilmember Jim Prola is looking for a District 6 resident willing to serve on the Board of Zoning Adjustments (BZA) after Amanda Goldt recently resigned. Goldt was appointed to the BZA in March 2001 to replace Jeff McGallian by former District 6 Councilmember and current Mayor Tony Santos.

According to the commission/board application, "The Board of Zoning Adjustments hears and decides upon applications for the approval of such zoning matters as conditional uses, variances and parking exceptions. Decisions of the board are final unless an appeal is filed, in which case the appeal is acted on by the City Council. The board may be asked to make recommendations to the Planning Commission regarding amendments to the Zoning Code, especially in the area of permitted uses in various zoning districts and specific development standards."

The BZA is scheduled to meet on the first and third Thursdays of the month at 7pm, but about half of the BZA's meetings are cancelled in a given year.

Prola is also inviting residents to apply for other board and commissions, including the Human Services Commission, Planning Commission, Library-Historical Commission, Recreation and Parks Commission, Senior Commission, and Youth Advisory Commission. After Prola begins his new term in 2008, he plans to consider new appointments for all of these commissions.

Applications can be downloaded from the City of San Leandro web site.
