The Eudora Planning Commission met Wednesday evening. Among the agenda items was appoint a new Vice Chairman for the Commission. David Montgomery, the previous Vice Chairman, resigned effective October 1st , as he has taken a new full time position in North Carolina.

The Planning Commission unanimously elected Dr. Patrick Jankowski to the position of Vice-Chairman.  Also on hand at the meeting was the new appointee for the planning commission, Grant Martin. Martin’s appointment is pending City Council approval at the next City Council meeting.

Martin has served as the Chairman of the Board of Appeals for the City of Eudora. Martin was born and raised in Lawrence and moved to Eudora, along with his family in 2003. Martin works full time in the dental sales business.  Martin stated that he hopes to help spur Eudora business development and smart growth for future housing development. He said he looks forward to being part of the community and commission “for a long time to come”.

If the City Commission approves the mayoral appointment, Martin would be seated at the next Planning Commission meeting in October.
