ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero is seeking to fill two positions on the Planning Commission and two positions on the Citizens’ Sales Tax Oversight Committee. All applicants must be residents of the
City of Atascadero. Completed applications will be accepted in the City Clerk’s office until
Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.
The Planning Commission is a body of seven citizens appointed by the City Council who review
matters related to land use planning and development. The commissioners serve at the pleasure of
the City Council. Five commissioners are directly appointed by each of the five individual Council
Members, and serve a two-year term. Two “at-large” appointments on the Commission are made by
a majority vote of the entire Council, and they serve a two-year term. The current vacancies are for
two-year terms. Interested candidates must be a resident of the City of Atascadero and a registered
voter in order to qualify.
The Citizens’ Sales Tax Oversight Committee (CSTOC) annually reviews revenues and expenditures
from the collection of the half-cent sales tax approved by voters in November 2014 and will
participate in the review of annual expenditures from tax revenue collected from Measure D-20, the
Essential Services Transactions and Use Tax Measure. The Committee is comprised of nine
members; seven members are appointed to the Committee by individual Atascadero community
groups and two members are appointed by the City Council. Appointees must be residents of the
City and may not be an elected official.
Those interested in applying for either the Planning Commissions or the Citizens’ Sales Tax
Oversight Committee (CSTOC) may obtain applications on the City’s website homepage at
www.atascadero.org under the “Latest News” section or by calling the City Clerk’s Office at (805)
