Amberley Village Environmental Stewardship Committee — Established in September 2004 to preserve and enhance the natural park-like heritage of Amberley and to improve the visual appearance of our neighborhoods. Seven to twelve members are appointed by Council for a two-year term with one representative each from Council, Planning Commission and staff, but the group is open to all residents with an interest in gardening, trees or nature.
Planning Commission/Board of Zoning Appeals (PC/BZA) — Comprised of one representative from Council and four members appointed by the Mayor for a term of four years, this body has two distinct functions.
- The PC may amend or modify the existing zoning code of the Village. A public hearing is held before any change is made, after which the PC makes a recommendation to Council. The Village Council can accept, reject, or modify and then adopt the PC’s recommendation.
- The BZA has the authority to grant relief from strict application of the zoning code when conditions of undue hardship or practical difficulty can be demonstrated. BZA cases are considered on an individual basis in the context of the zoning and neighborhood character.
Stormwater Management Advisory Committee — Oversees and makes recommendations concerning improvements and maintenance of the Village-owned portions of the stormwater sewer system. Section 156 of the Code of Ordinances guides policy and decisions made by this committee. Chaired by a member of Council, its remaining four members are residents appointed by the Mayor for a four-year term.
Income Tax Review Board – Hears appeals from residents on decisions of the Income Tax Administrator. It may affirm, reverse or modify the original decision. Consists of three members who may not be members of Council. Current board members are: Village Treasurer Rick Kay and Judy Barron, with a third seat open following the election of Ben Hunt to Council.
Human Rights Commission – Hears concerns from residents regarding human rights issues. The commission works to bring about mutual understanding and respect among all persons, and to safeguard the right and opportunity of persons to be free from all forms of discrimination.
