• Planning Commission — Two positions with four-year terms, one expires Dec. 31, 2023, and the other on Dec. 31, 2024. The commission meets at 6 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, typically for one or two hours. The commission advises the city council on policies, regulations and capital spending related to growth and development. It may also conduct proceedings on specific land use applications, such as subdivisions. Applicants must be residents of Sequim.
