During the December 11, 2023 City Council Meeting, we had the privilege of honoring Don Bowen for his long-standing service on the North Richland Hills Planning & Zoning Commission.
Mr. Bowen was first appointed to the Commission in 1980 and served our city for 42 years. During his tenure, he attended 702 P&Z meetings, providing input and recommendations to the City Council on thousands of zoning change requests and plats and helping to shape the city’s zoning regulations, development codes and long-range plans.
Mr. Bowen served 11 years as secretary for the Planning and Zoning Commission, one year as vice chairman and eight years as chairman. He was bestowed the 2014 Planning Commissioner Award by the American Planning Association Texas Chapter to recognize his exceptional and relentless hard work.
In recognition of his many years of volunteer service to our community, Mayor Trevino proclaimed December 11, 2023 as Don Bowen Day in the City of North Richland Hills. Please join us in recognizing and thanking Don Bowen for his outstanding service to the City of North Richland Hills.
