Vacancy on Minneapolis Zoning Board of Adjustment
As resumes go, mine’s on the long side:
Realtor. Former corporate attorney. Former CPA. Entrepreneur. Writer/blogger. Investor. Political candidate. Law school and economics background.
You get the idea.
But it turns out there’s a hole in my resume — at least at far as the Minneapolis Zoning Board of Adjustment (“ZBOA”) is concerned.
When I applied for the current vacancy, the panel doing the interviewing told me that the ideal candidate is . . . an architect (the ZBOA already has a Realtor, and they want more balance).
The panel hasn’t made a formal recommendation yet — but I’m not holding my breath . . .
P.S.: the ZBOA’s main function is to review requests for variances from Minneapolis homeowners, developers, etc. As such, it provides a great window into what’s happening in various Minneapolis neighborhoods — and a chance to influence same.
