About the Commission

The Planning Commission has seven regular members and two alternates, who are appointed by the City Council for three-year terms. 

Most resident interact with the Planning Commission during public hearings for subdivisions of land, rezoning, or variances from the Zoning Ordinance. The commission forwards their recommendations, along with public input from these hearings, to the City Council for final action. 

The City’s Planning Department does all research and paperwork for the commission.
