Two Resign From Potter County Planning Commission

Vacancies On County Planning Commission

sudivplanTwo long-serving members of the Potter County Planning Commission have resigned. Letters of resignation from members John Nordquist and Mitch DeLong were accepted at Thursday’s meeting of the Potter County Commissioners.

The organization was formed in the 1960s to administer land use regulations and guide county decision-making in other environmental and infrastructure matters, including the development of a comprehensive plan. Much of the commission’s time is consumed with administration of the county’s Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance. Members serve at no compensation. Planning Director is Charlotte Dietrich, a full-time county employee, whose office is located at the Gunzburger Building.

Current Planning Commission members are Wanda Shirk, Bill Dean, Rance Baxter, Marshall Hamilton and John McLaughlin. Ms. Shirk was re-elected as the chair during this week’s monthly meeting. The Potter County Board of Commissioners will appoint successors to fill the unexpired terms of John Nordquist and Mitch DeLong. Potter County Today

Mitch must have been offered a County job by our one term Commissioners. Just watch and see.

It's one thing to criticize actions...all of this speculation on here is absolutely ridiculous! I hope the vast majority of readers don't buy it.

Mitch and John will be missed on the Planning Commission. They were very solid members.

Maybe Mitch was offered a job. Anything wrong with that?

It would be nice to get some more "pro development" members in there.

What are you like 13 years old? You beat up Mitch anytime his name is ever mentioned. Take your little personal battle somewhere else or better yet, MAN UP and quit hiding behind your cheap shots and do something abbout it.

Mitch and John are done because not even the Commissioners bought their wind farm bit. They quit because people want better ideas for the county than what they had to offer. All it would take was for the public to see one meeting and see these 2 interact with the board. Not pretty. They definitely had their own agenda and its not along the majority lines.

JMHO...obviously you have no recollection of the Adelphi era where buildings were built accross multiple lots and buildings were torn down to make really nice flower gardens. I think "pro development" has been out of hand...what we need is controlled development.

to all,
do not loose sight of the past several years of quality work the entire planning board has performed.i have not heard of one complaint of the subdivisions passed and believe that wanda and the entire board get an a+ for overseeing the planning effort in our county.
john and mitch can be replaced as can we all.

John has been an asset for years...
and for that I thank you John.

"Mitch and John are done because not even the Commissioners bought their wind farm bit."

Such a mean post...do you have an ax to grind with either or both of these gentlemen?

Must be Mitch's girlfriend defending him on this site.

"Must be Mitch's girlfriend" ???

Why don't you grow up!

I was speaking about John, I do not even know Mitch.

My husband and I have known John N. for years.

Wanda Shirk is the one that should resign!!Mich and John were both good men and a asset to the PCPC. I watched Wanda attack them both because they did not agree with her. She will be the downfall of the planning commission one member at a time.

Wanda Shirk has done a good job for the county as well. I do not think any of the members should resign.

The PCPC is just a rubber stamp. Fortunately they are not a paid position.

I recall it perfectly. Where was (is) the problem? If you are talking about the old eyesore Texaco building being tore down to become a landscaped lot, I think few would agree that was a step backwards.

Actually...I'm talking about the Mausoleum, Tennis Center, and Data center....partially on Adelphia property and partially on Rigas owned property. I believe that it may all be resolved now, but at the time it was built, no zoning changes were made to accomodate it. Also, when they tore down Jim Bruzzi's house to build the Hyperion parking garage. I'm not esaying that it made things look bad, but it was not done completely legally according to zoning....which has always been somewhat vague in town anyway. Speaking of Adelphia created eyesores, take a look at the Old Hickory or the old Kightlinger garage on Mill St....both former Adelphia properties. I find it hard to believe that they could put up a marble barn for Wending creek, but couldn't do something about these eyesores.

MITCH'S GIRLFRIEND? JOHN AND MITCH ARE TICKED OFF BECAUSE THE BOARD RE-ELECTED WANDA AS CHAIRPERSON. EVERYONE KNOWS MITCH HAS WANTED THAT POSITION SINCE HE WORMED HIS WAY ON TO THE BOARD. I THINK IT'S GREAT THAT WANDA HAS THE CONFIDENCE OF THE MAJORITY OF THE BOARD. SHE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. AND DON'T SAY YOU DON'T KNOW MITCH DELONG. HE MAKES SURE HE IS NOTICED A LOT!!!!
