The City Council recently appointed Seward Soundboard author Sean Ulman to a three-year term on the Planning & Zoning (P&Z) Commission, due to expire in 2025. Ulman told the Journal last week that a growing interest in the city’s housing crisis played a significant role in his decision to join the commission.
“It just made sense to have these conversations on a regular basis with a strong committee to learn more about Planning and Zoning and the issues,” he said. “I really look forward to joining a strong team of individuals, to listening, to learning and to serving my community in a way where community and cooperation remain as important as they are.”
Ulman’s first P&Z meeting as a commissioner was the Sep. 20 work session on short term rental regulations.
