kannapolis board vacancies
KANNAPOLIS ó Applications are now available for three new commissions created by the Kannapolis City Council in November. These boards will help guide the city through the changes created by the transformation occurring in Kannapolis.
The deadline for submitting an application is March 7, and the Kannapolis City Council will likely make appointments to the commissions at its March 24 meeting.
“As we continue to grow and change as a city, citizen input is critical,” said Kannapolis Mayor Bob Misenheimer. “We hope that a large group of diverse residents will take an interest in helping guide council decisions.”
The groups include the Environmental Stewardship Commission, the Diversity Commission and the Citizens Advisory Commission for Community Development.
The Environmental Stewardship Commission will examine environmental issues from stormwater to beautification to recycling.
The Diversity Commission has the goal of creating programs and resources to help enhance the knowledge and understanding of diversity as well as creating a more inclusive community grounded in respect and appreciation for individual differences.
The Citizens Advisory Commission for Community Development will plan, assess and review the community development program, including the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). This commission will also recommend, prioritize and monitor community development and revitalization projects.
