Alan King Honored for 28 Years of Service to the City of Melbourne
This week Mayor Kathy Meehan formally thanked and recognized Alan King for his 28 years of service on the Planning and Zoning Board. In late June King resigned his position as Planning and Zoning Board chair because he recently moved outside of the city limits and therefore no longer holds the residency requirements for serving on the board.
During his 28 years on the Planning and Zoning Board, King provided expertise, guidance and leadership on pending development matters along with revisions to the City Code and Comprehensive Plan.
“You have truly left an imprint on our city,” Mayor Meehan told King. “Staff continues to hold you up as a role model for volunteer board members in the city who wish to serve as chair. The City Council thanks you for this service and appreciates the tremendous commitment that you made.”
The Planning and Zoning Board acts primarily in an advisory capacity to the City Council on questions relating to zoning, comprehensive planning, and land use. The board conducts investigations on matters or proposals to change zoning and land development regulations, and in some cases it makes the final decision on site plan approval requests under one acre. The board meets the first and third Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber of City Hall.
“Mr. King is highly respected by his board, city staff, and the community for his work and professionalism on this board,” said City Clerk Cathy Wysor. “The City is going to miss him!”
