The Planning Commission is one of the most important groups in local government as they help set the long-term direction or vision for the community.
The Planning Commission assists in the initial development and amendment of the Comprehensive Plan, the development regulations, and other City plans through review, public hearings, community input, and make recommendations to the City Council. The Commission reviews certain development proposals for conformity with applicable plans, rules, and regulations. The Planning Commission also holds public hearings, makes recommendations to City Council, or makes the final decision for certain types of applications.
Serving on the Planning Commission is one of the most rewarding ways a resident can serve their community!
