SEQUIM — The city of Sequim is seeking applicants for two volunteer commissions.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all city meetings are currently being conducted over Zoom.

• 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.

• Civil Service Commission — Two positions one ending Dec. 31, 2026 and a second ending Dec. 31, 2027.

State law requires applicants to be U.S. citizens, registered to vote in Clallam County and residents of Sequim for at least three years preceding their appointment. The commission meets at 8:30 a.m. the first Tuesday of each month.
