The City of Fernie has appointed six residents to act as members of a Design Review Panel.

The panel will serve as an advisory committee to the City and will provide recommendations to Director of Planning, Bruce Lennox, in regards to building and site development within Fernie.

Six community members have come forward to express interest and volunteer their time to be a part of the Design Review Panel. Michael Clark, Robert Holmes, Michael Pennock, Stephen Robertson, Arthur Sombrowski, and Laura Weckman will all serve one term on the committee. Council will have the option to reappoint each individual for a further term in the future.

With a past RCMP officer, engineer, Historical Society curator, and a former city planner among the members, each individual will bring their own relevant area of interest to the panel.

The original terms of reference for the Design Review Panel outline that the committee should be made up of seven individuals from the community of Fernie. In the hopes of finding one more member, Council will continue to ask for applications from residents interested in joining the panel.
