Summit County is seeking people to serve on its two planning commissions. The boards have duties related to growth matters in the Snyderville Basin and eastern Summit County.

The deadline to submit applications to serve on the Basin Planning Commission is Feb. 16. People interested in serving on the Eastern Summit County Planning Commission should apply by Feb. 15.

Letters of interest can be sent to the Summit County Council, P.O. Box 128, Coalville, Utah, 84017. Letters can be sent via e-mail to vswensen@co.summit.ut.us.

Each planning commission has two available seats.

The openings on the Eastern Summit County Planning Commission come as a result of the retirements of Planning Commissioners John Blazzard and Antone Powell, who are completing their third terms on the panel.

Meanwhile, the first terms for Basin Planning Commissioners Julie Hooker and Flint Decker expire this year. Hooker and Decker are expected to reapply.
