Applicants sought for Vancouver public facilities board

By , Columbian staff writer

The city of Vancouver is seeking applicants to fill three seats on its Public Facilities District Board of Directors.

The five-member board was created in 1999 and tasked with developing the downtown hotel and convention center. Now, the board receives state sales tax credit program funding for operation of the property, which it transfers to the Downtown Redevelopment Authority. The board monitors sales tax credit revenue and approves annual budgets.

The Vancouver City Council appoints board members, who serve four year terms and may serve a maximum of two terms. Applicants must be available for an interview with the city council on Nov. 4.

The board meets twice a year — currently, with COVID-19, all city meetings must be held remotely.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Oct. 4. For more information about the Vancouver PFD, visit
