Would you like to help the City of Ithaca continue to create a livable, healthy, and equitable city? If you do and you live in the City of Ithaca, we’d love to hear from you! The City of Ithaca is seeking a new member to join the Planning & Development Board. The Board guides development projects through the site plan review process; advises Common Council on decisions involving planning, zoning, and land use; makes recommendations to Common Council regarding major public improvements; and contributes to the physical planning of our city to create a more sustainable future.  

The Planning and Development Board meets monthly on the fourth Tuesday and consists of seven voting members who serve three-year terms. Ideal candidates would have an interest in development, planning, design, architecture, and/or landscape architecture. The City of Ithaca is committed to Equity and Inclusion.
