Planning Commission

Board Description
The Planning Commission is comprised of seven city residents, of which one is a City Council member, serving four-year terms (two term maximum). They typically meet once a month to consider requests from citizens and developers on issues such as rezonings, special use permits, major subdivisions, and street and alley closings. The Commission's recommendations are forwarded to City Council to help their decision-making. The Commission also assists the City with special projects such as ordinance revisions and special sub-committees.


Four years; two successive.
