Planning and Zoning Commission Vacancy

Due to a recent vacancy, the City of Peosta has an opening on our Planning and Zoning Commission. 

The city has basic requirements for membership on the commission, that include 4 of the 5 members be a resident of Peosta. The additional member of the commission may be a resident of the area outside the city over which the zoning jurisdiction of the city has been extended. This area is a 2-mile perimeter. Also, the city strives to make sure that we have a gender balance, so we are in accordance with the State of Iowa Code that is outlined below.

Responsibilities vary from reviewing preliminary and finals plats, rezoning requests to ensure that the city is adhering to our Comprehensive and future land plans. You need not have any experience in these areas as there are seasoned members and staff that will guide you through each issue that is brought before the commission. The window for this opening will be 90-days starting on June 5th, 2023, afterward, the mayor will appoint the most qualified individual to complete the vacancies term, which is September 1, 2023. The term for this vacancy ends April 1, 2024.

This is an exciting time for the City of Peosta with the rapid growth of both residential and commercial development for you to become involved with the city, so give me a call at 563-556-8755 if you’re interested in learning more or would like to be considered for an appointment to the commission.

Gender Balance

1. All appointive boards, commissions, committees, and councils of the state established by the Code, if not otherwise provided by law, shall be gender balanced. No person shall be appointed or reappointed to any board, commission, committee, or council established by the Code if that appointment or reappointment would cause the number of members of the board, commission, committee, or council of one gender to be greater than one-half the membership of the board, commission, committee, or council plus one if the board, commission, committee, or council is composed of an odd number of members. If the board, commission, committee, or council is composed of an even number of members, not more than one-half of the membership shall be of one gender. If there are multiple appointing authorities for a board, commission, committee, or council, they shall consult each other to avoid a violation of this section.

All appointive boards, commissions, committees, and councils of a political subdivision of the state that are established by the Code, if not otherwise provided by law, shall be gender balanced as provided by subsection 1 unless the political subdivision has made a good faith effort to appoint a qualified person to fill a vacancy on a board, commission, committee, or council in compliance with subsection 1 for a period of three months but has been unable to make a compliant appointment. In complying with the requirements of this subsection, political subdivisions shall utilize a fair and unbiased method of selecting the best qualified applicants. This subsection shall not prohibit an individual whose term expires prior to January 1, 2012, from being reappointed even though the reappointment continues an inequity in gender balance.

Peosta Community Centre Project Renovation News

Excuse our Mess (we are renovating the Peosta Community Centre and City Hall)!

Peosta is incredibly fortunate to have such a beautiful facility that is able to house many activities, tournaments, weddings, trade shows, craft shows – and even a city hall!

Hard to believe that the building is 17 years old, and like with any aging structure, renovations are needed to keep the building functional, safe and continue to serve our community and those who visit our beautiful city.  Starting March 13, our renovations to the community centre and city hall will start.  What does this mean to you.  The main entrance into city hall from the north parking lot will be closed off and not accessible.  So, during the renovation the city hall staff will relocate to the lower level (gym entrance) in an office right beside the Executive Director’s office, and there will be an alternative way to access the banquet room from the north parking lot. We will make sure that signage is placed in the needed areas to guide you to our office and banquet facilities for any upcoming events.

Most of the work will be done on the inside, but you will see some outside activity as well.  Most notably, in the beginning, a fenced off area for the construction staging.  Inside, there will be some demolition to build out some very needed office space for the city hall staff.  For those of you who have lived in the area, the city hall was located in the Centralia/Peosta Fire Department building, and that staff of “one” migrated to the Community Centre back in 2005.   Since then, the city has added the positions of City Administrator, Deputy Clerk and Communications Coordinator.

The most notable renovations will be a new roof, office build outs for city hall, and a much needed elevator.  There will be other construction items taking place and I or the mayor will provide updates each month on the construction as it happens.

The city expects the renovations to last through October of this year. 

We will have the same office hours from Monday through Thursday, 7:30am-4:30pm and Friday’s 8a-noon. We will strive to limit any disruptions to service and make sure that we communicate through the newsletter, Facebook and our website on any planned disruptions in the way that we communicate.

So, stay tuned! Once the construction is complete, the city will host an open house to showcase all the great things that have taken place.  As always, call (563) 556-8755, or stop by if you have any questions.
