Council appoints new Planning Commissioner

WOODINVILLE - On Oct. 16, the Woodinville City Council appointed downtown resident Sheri Zanger to fill a vacancy on the City's Planning Commission left when former Commissioner Gareth Grube was selected in August to serve on the City Council. Zanger's term expires July 1, 2003.
   The City Council interviewed Zanger, Douglas Gunwaldsen and Tiffany Bond in a public process.
   Candidates were asked about their current civic involvement, important issues facing the City, their five to 10 year vision of the City and how the City can do a more effective job of planning for both neighborhoods and urban growth.
   "All three candidates expressed great interest in serving the Woodinville community," said Mayor Randy Ransom. "Ms. Zanger's current involvement with her condominium owners' association and her work experience in law enforcement provide skills that will work well on the Planning Commission."
   Zanger has lived in downtown Woodinville since 1994 and is currently employed as an Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement Agent with the Washington State Liquor Control Board. She will begin her service at the Nov. 1 Planning Commission meeting.
   The Planning Commission is a seven-member volunteer board appointed by the City Council that makes recommendations to the Council on planning and land use regulations and policies.
