The chairman of the Flossmoor Zoning Board of Appeals has stepped down after 31 years of serving on the board, 23 of those as chair.
Alan Roman also served on the village’s plan commission for 23 years, according to assistant village manager Patrick Finn.
“He did provide some really good leadership to the zoning board,” Finn said. “He was also very adept at dealing with public hearings and such, where sometimes emotions would get strong and you’d have a controversial issue.”
Roman is moving to Chicago with his family, which disqualifies him from serving, Finn said. Mayor Paul Braun appointed Greg Mitchell, a zoning board member since 1999, to replace Roman as chairman.
