Sun Valley P&Z has a new face

Keith Saks joins city panel

Keith Saks

The newest member of the Sun Valley Planning & Zoning Commission took his seat last week.

Keith Saks joined the board May 10, saying he hopes to give back to his adopted community.

"Number one, I feel very fortunate to be living here," he said in an interview. "I wanted to have a say in this community I live in, rather than sit back and complain about what everybody else is doing."

Saks, an attorney by trade and a licensed professional mediator, recently received his Idaho real estate brokerage license. He served on city boards in Coral Gables, Fla., and, upon moving to the Wood River Valley about four years ago, joined the board of the Sage Hill Homeowners Association.

With the resignation of former P&Z Commissioner John Gaeddert last winter, Saks submitted his name for consideration.

"I thought it was a meaningful way to have some input on the direction of growth and development in the city," he said. "I try to put something back and have some involvement in what's going on—not just be a taker."
