Elections Subcommitee

PB Planning Group Bylaw revision completed

The PBPG has completed the revision process and the new PBPG Bylaws have been approved by the City of San Diego.  The new election process is now in effect.  Following are the key changes to the PBPG Bylaws concerning elections:

  • 25 signatures are no longer required for either the Residential or Commercial seats.
  • Meeting attendance to qualify to run for a seat have increased from the previous 1 meeting to 2 meetings.  Therefore, any person who desires to run for a seat on the PBPG must attend at least 2 PBPG meetings in the previous 12 months.  1 meeting must be a monthly General meeting (typically the 4th Wednesday of the month).  The second meeting can either be a monthly general meeting, or, can be any of the official PBPG subcommittee meetings.  Dates & agendas for the subcommittee meetings are published on the PBPG website.
  • Persons desiring to run for an open seat must contact the Election Subcommittee Chair to obtain an election application and information packet.  Upon completion of the application and verification of attending 2 meetings, the person is eligible for consideration for a seat on the PBPG.  Candidates must also provide a brief biography and include why they are interested in serving on the PBPG board.
  • The annual general election is held in March of each year.  In addition, the board also fills open seats during the year via mid-term elections.  Interested persons can contact the Election Chair for more information.
