§ 76  City Planning Commission
   There shall be a City Planning Commission composed of seven (7) members. One shall be a member of the Council of the City of Cleveland chosen by each Council to serve during the term of such Council, and six members shall be appointed by the Mayor, with the approval of Council, and may be removed by the Mayor. Two alternate members shall be appointed by the Mayor, with the approval of Council, and may be removed by the Mayor. The alternate members may serve in place of a non-Council member of the City Planning Commission who is unable to act or is self-disqualified because of personal interest, and shall then have all the powers of the member and shall receive compensation for services as determined by the Council. In the event of the absence of the one Council member of the City Planning Commission, the Council President may appoint another Council member to serve as a member pro tempore for purposes of that City Planning Commission meeting. The term of the members, other than Council members, shall be six (6) years, except that of the initial appointments of the non-alternate members, the terms of two members shall be two (2) years, and the terms of two members shall be four (4) years. Vacancies in the Commission shall be filled in the same manner for the unexpired term. The Chairman of the Commission shall be appointed annually by the Mayor from the members and may be removed as Chairman at the Mayor’s pleasure.
