Care about our local community? Get involved!

Monday, October 30, 2017

Tompkins County is seeking motivated volunteers who reflect the diverse backgrounds and interests of our community to serve on its Planning Advisory Board (PAB).

Participation on a County advisory body is an excellent way to get involved in local government and can truly make a difference. This fall, the PAB is seeking applicants for the following seats: At-Large,  Education, and Natural Environment.

The PAB provides the Tompkins County Legislature and the Department of Planning and Sustainability with advice and counsel on comprehensive land-use planning and matters related to regional, County, and municipal planning.

Members typically meet in downtown Ithaca eight to ten times per year from 9:00-10:30 a.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

Individuals interested in applying for a seat on the Planning Advisory Board must fill out an application and submit it to the Clerk of the Tompkins County Legislature.  Applications will be reviewed by the Planning Advisory Board with appointment by the County Legislature. 

Applications can be found at and should be submitted by November 20, 2017.
