NORTH PORT — The city’s restructured Community Economic Development Advisory Board gained seven of 11 members this week when North Port commissioners approved area residents to fill the seats, following the board being defunct for more than a year.
Since the categories of the revamped board were approved in February, commissioners have gathered names and recommendations of residents to consider for the all-volunteer group. Monday afternoon, each of the 15 applicants was discussed as a potential member for the CEDAB. The citizens, with no business or specific organizational affiliation, applied to fill representative titles, including real estate, higher education, development/engineering/planning, land-use attorney, medical/health care, North Port resident, homeowners association, financial services, tourism, communications and diversified light industrial.
