Commission overview

The commission helps implement city plans by making recommendations to the City Council on long-range planning issues, such as land use and transportation, as well as current issues regarding such matters as subdivisions, site plans, conditional use permits, variances, and others that are planning and zoning related.

After the commission makes a recommendation on a request, the item is scheduled for an upcoming City Council meeting for final action.
