Join the Planning Commission
The City Council is currently seeking new members to join the Planning Commission.
The Planning Commission is tasked with developing the City Plan and proposing amendments over time for consideration and adoption by the City Council. They are also tasked with making special studies on matters such as land development, urban renewal, transportation, economic and social development, urban beautification and design improvements, historic and scenic preservation, the conservation of energy, the development of renewable energy resources, and wetland protection.
The Planning Commission is also responsible for making recommendations on how to implement those plans including proposing amendments to the Unified Development Regulations (also known as the Zoning Bylaws). The Commission meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 5:30pm.
