Charlottesville's City Council will be interviewing several candidates to fill at least one vacant position on the Charlottesville Planning Commission today (March 3, 2008) in the Basement Conference Room at City Hall starting at 5:00 pm. I understand that the interviews are open to the public (but I couldn't find any announcement about that on the city website). If you have an interest in local planning issues, an interest in becoming a planning commissioner sometime in the future, or simply interested in seeing and hearing the interviews in person - do attend. I plan to stop in for some of the interviews myself. The City Council meeting starts at 7:00 pm so the interviews can not go more than about an hour and a half. Last time interviews took place the successful candidate was announced after a brief closed session after the interviews were complete. Perhaps that will happen again this time.
