McMinnville Regional Planning Commission members have undergone four hours of training in a session highlighting the commission process, as well as the dos and don’ts. Advisor Bill Terry warned members against “ex parte contact” with individuals who will be making a request of the planning commission or the Board of Zoning Appeals.“Ex parte means ‘on one side only’ or for one party, done for, in behalf of, or on the application of one party only. Simply stated, a contact is ex parte if all parties involved are not properly notified of the contact,” said Terry.
