addition to the members herein before provided (the Mayor and one member
of the Council), there shall be five citizen members of the Planning
Commission appointed to three year terms of office by the Council by a
motion adopted by a majority vote of the members of the Council;
however, the first citizen members appointed pursuant to this Charter
shall be appointed so that two shall serve for a term of three years,
two shall serve for a term of two years, and one shall serve for a term
of one year. Thereafter, each citizen member shall be appointed to serve
a term of three years. Such citizen members of the Commission shall
also be full voting members.
The powers, duties and functions of the Planning Commission shall
be provided by this Charter and the ordinances and resolutions of the
Municipality; but until such ordinances or resolutions shall be passed,
it shall possess powers, duties, and functions as are provided by the
laws of Ohio, to the extent that such laws do not conflict with the
provisions of this Charter.
The Planning Commission shall annually review the Comprehensive Master Plan.
The Planning Commission shall annually review all Community and Economic Development Incentives.
