Planning Commission

The Planning Commission consists of five citizen members serving overlapping four-year terms. The Commission reviews and recommends action for development, improvement proposals, proposed code amendments and provides a public forum for discussion of plans and proposed development. Applicants must seek the recommendation of the Planning Commission before obtaining approval from City Council for either new development or alterations to existing building structures. The Planning Commission serves as a recommending body to City Council except for decisions on Lot Split applications.

The Planning Commission meets once a month on the first Tuesday following the first Monday of each month. Currently, meetings are held virtually and are open to the public via the website or through a virtual meeting site. A link to join the virtual meeting will be posted on the City Calendar prior to the meeting.

Special meetings may be held at any time upon request of the Commission Chairperson with at least a 24-hour notice (either written or personal contact) to each of the Commission members. The complete rules and responsibilities of Planning Commission are contained within their bylaws.
