Sumner’s Planning Commission provides input to the City Council on how the city will look and function in the future, including zoning, regulations, and special plans for neighborhoods. Basically, if you’re interested in topics like affordable housing, the environment, economic development, transit and mitigating traffic congestion, this might be the commission for you. Commissioners serve four-year terms, and we have vacancies that need filling. Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in the City, i.e. live here or own a business here. This Commission usually meets once a month.
