Kenmore City Council has named Suzanne Greathouse and Nathan Loutsis as the two newest planning commissioners.

Both participated in their first Planning Commission meeting on Jan. 15 at Kenmore City Hall.

Greathouse has been a Kenmore resident for the past five years and recently retired from AT&T as a senior technical director. According to a city press release, she is active in the community and currently serves on the Kenmore Heritage Society and Northshore Senior Center boards of directors.

Loutsis is currently an Inglemoor High School student, has held several leadership positions in the National Honor Society and serves as student body treasurer, the release states. He is also an instructor and senior official in Northlake Little League and a volunteer sergeant with the King County Sheriff’s Department explorer program.

The commission serves as a policy advisory body to the City Council, providing guidance and recommendations on the city’s Comprehensive Plan and related land use documents, according to the release.

“We are so excited about these appointments,” Kenmore Mayor David Baker said in the release. “City Council firmly believes the Planning Commission should reflect our diverse community and this is the first time a student will serve. Who is better to help us plan for the future?”

Council sought applicants from all geographic areas of the city, the release states. After a wide call for applicants in late 2018 to fill upcoming vacancies, eight candidates were interviewed by council.

The seven-member commission typically meets at 7 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of the month at Kenmore City Hall. All commission members are unpaid volunteers.
