Heaton resigns from Charlottesville Planning Commission

There’s a vacancy on the seven-member Charlottesville Planning Commission. Gary Heaton was  appointed to the body in October 2018 soon after moving to the city to become senior pastor of First United Methodist Church. He told his colleagues he’ll be leaving the city shortly for another professional posting.

“I will be reassigned as of July so I think will be exiting my responsibilities on the Planning Commission what did I say, the 15th of April,” Heaton said.

However, his exact last day may be later than that depending on whether the seat can be filled. The vacancy has not yet been posted on the city’s Boards and Commission page. There is also a vacancy on the Board of Zoning Appeals.  Learn more about the Planning Commission on the city website
