The Planning Commission is the body authorized to create and approve a master plan as a guide for community development. The Commission then implements the plan through recommendations on zoning ordinance amendments, development of the capital improvements program, and review of development proposals and creation of sub-area plans. The Commission consists of nine members, and is staffed by the City Planner. The members are appointed for three-year terms and meetings are held at 7:00 P.M., the third Thursday of each month at City Hall.
Conceptual site plan review at the Planning Commission level is available to provide general feedback on a development proposal before full engineering is completed. To be most effective, the applicant should provide a general site plan, land use breakdown, and building elevation information.Planning Commission Bylaws can be found HERE.
