Scholin to Receive “Citizen Planner” Award
Pine City council member Brian Scholin will be honored next week with the “Citizen Planner” award. Scholin receives the award for his level of involvement, overall positive effect on the community, length of commitment, and leadership in the realm of planning. He worked on the city’s comprehensive plan adopted in 1998 and municipal development ordinance (M.D.O.) adopted in 2006.
Scholin is currently the Planning Commission secretary and was appointed to the commission in 1989. He has been on the council since 1993 and is presently the acting mayor.
He will receive the award at the Pine City Planning Commission’s open house on October 28th. The open house is being held in conjunction with “National Planning Month.”
The open house will also include illustrations and plans from the Minnesota Design Team, who visited Pine City in late September. Those who were not able to attend the MDT visit can see there plans first hand at the open house and also see vintage pictures of Pine City.
