In two separate Council actions, the Riverdale City Council accepted the resignation of Planning & Zoning Commissioner Kevin Adams (who will be taking a seat on the City Council in January) and then appointed long-time resident, Teri Stickler, to the board.

“We’ve appreciated everything Kevin has done on the P&Z Commission and look forward to having him join us on the City Council in January,” said Mayor Mike Bawden. “Kevin is always interested in knowing and understanding the various issues that lie behind everything we do – and that’s a tremendous benefit to both the Council and the community.”

Kevin was appointed to the commission in January of 2019 and was going to serve the balance of a five-year term expiring on December 31, 2023. His appointment to the Riverdale City Council starts on January 1, although he won’t be officially sworn into office until the first meeting of the Council in early January. An individual is prohibited by law from serving on both a city’s council and planning and zoning commission at the same time.

Teri Stickler attended Monday’s meeting of the Planning & Zoning Commission so she would be informed as to where things stood on the upcoming review/recommendation for the Phase 1 Final Plat of the Woods Estates of Riverdale Subdivision. As a member of the commission, she will be tasked with participating in the upcoming public hearing and deliberations by the council whether to recommend approval of the plat or not. 

Teri’s term on the commission will expire on December 31, 2023.
