With the application deadline past and interviews scheduled to begin next week, three applicants have submitted their names to fill the vacated spot on the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission.

Chuck Klingenstein, David Kottler and Joel Fine have all applied to fill Sibyl Bogardus’s term, which expires in December, 2012.

Joel Fine, a member of the Park City Board of Realtors and a real estate agent in Summit County said he wants to join the planning commission because he is fascinated by the process.

"Someone with experience in real estate would be really beneficial for the board," said Fine. "I like to ask questions, probe and have no bias as far as pro-development or no-development."

David Kottler, a real estate broker and an injury lawyer said his interest in joining the planning commission stems from his background and desire to be involved and help where his qualifications are most applicable.

"I am most interested in promoting smart growth and ensuring an open and fair process for both applicants and interested members of the public whenever they deal with the planning commission," Kottler said.
