I-a. In cities with a city council-city manager form of government, the planning board may consist of the following 9 members:
(a) The city manager, or with the approval of the local legislative body the city manager's designee, who shall be an ex officio member;
(b) A member of the city council selected by the council, who shall be an ex officio member; and
(c) Seven persons appointed by the mayor, if the mayor is an elected official, or such other method of appointment or election as shall be provided for by the local legislative body or municipal charter.
Dover’s City Council utilized the clause, allowing the local legislative body to provide for appointment, in (c) to define the membership of the Planning Board. Since 1977 this has been memorialized in Chapter 41 of the City of Dover Code. This chapter states that the regular membership of the Planning Board consists of 9 members. Three are Ex-Officio:
The remaining 6 regular members and 3 alternates are members of the public at large, as appointed to the Board, by the City Council.
All regular members, including the three Ex-Officio, have voting rights.
