By Karen Billing

An election for eight seats on the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board (CVCPB) will be held on March 27. The election will be held from 6- 6:30 p.m. on the patio of the Carmel Valley Library.

Residential seats are for people who are at least 18 years old, currently living in Carmel Valley or Pacific Highlands Ranch, and reside in the seat’s district. In order to be an eligible candidate in the March election, the candidate must declare his or her intention to run for the seat and submit an application. Candidates for residential seats must have attended two complete, documented meetings of the CVCPB’s last 12 regular meetings prior to the March election.

An individual voting for a neighborhood candidate will be required to show proof of residency in that neighborhood. An individual voting as a designee of a business or investor candidate will be required to show written permission from the local business or property owner to act as their designee. A business owner or investor must also show proof of business activity or ownership of property with the Carmel Valley planning area.

The following seats are up for re-election: Neighborhood 4/4A (incumbent Hollie Kahn), Neighborhood 7 (incumbent Steve Ross), Neighborhood 8 (Frisco White), Neighborhood 8A/8B (Anne Harvey), Neighborhood 9 (Steve Davison), Business Representative (Victor Manoushakian), Investor Representative (Christian Clews) and PHR District 11 (Manjeet Ranu).
