DIXON, CA (MPG) - Planning Commissioner Joe Quinn, who has served as Chair for the past couple years on the City of Dixon Planning Commission said his goodbyes to fellow Planning Commissioners at the last Planning Commission Meeting via Zoom.

Quinn was in the middle of his 4-year term but has served on the Commission before. A new commissioner is needed to complete the rest of his term. Quinn happily announced that he was moving to Tennessee where a daughter already resides and his family is relocating, he said. He was wished well by the other commissioners and given much appreciation for his work chairing the group as they delved into many large and complicated projects submitted for the community in the past years.

Commissioner Jack Caldwell will be the new Chair and Commissioner; Janet Koster will serve as Vice Chair.
