Who Should Be On Planning Commissions?

What happens when a Plan Commission has no architect, landscape architect, planner or developer from the private sector?

"The Plan Commission and Urban Design Commission need to be more than platforms for personal tastes and political stances. Unfortunately the plan approval process does little to proactively attract quality projects to fill specific community needs, or to enhance a larger vision for a more vital and more sustainable future for our city... Designers, architects, landscape architects, planners and developers need to be engaged in the process and the public debate, starting by appointing qualified design professionals to the Plan Commission."
