URBANA — The Champaign County Regional Planning Commission is seeking candidates to replace Ed Bland on the nine-member board.
Bland, executive director of the Housing Authority of Champaign County, recently indicated he wanted to resign from the RPC board by the end of the year.
Bland's replacement would serve as the low-income and minority group member on the commission. The low-income and minority group member is appointed by the other commissioners to a two-year term. It is anticipated that a successor would be appointed in January to complete the final year of the current two-year term, and would be eligible for appointment to a two-year term beginning in January 2014.
The RPC administers a number of planning, community and economic development programs, and early childhood education services for Champaign County and surrounding counties.
Those interested in the low-income and minority group appointment to the RPC board can apply online at http://www.ccrpc.org/rpcjobs. Questions about serving on the commission can be directed to Cameron Moore at 328-3313. Applications must be submitted no later than Nov. 2.
