The Planning Commission plays a central role in the planning process in three important ways. First, it acts as an advisory board to the City Council on all planning and development issues. Second, the Commission assures that the General Plan is implemented by reviewing development applications on a case-by-case basis.
Third, the Commission functions as the decision-making body for new development and conditional use permits. The Planning Commission's actions are final, but can be appealed to the City Council. The City Council can uphold the commission's decision, overturn it, modify it, or send it back to the Planning Commission for further study.
The Planning Commission consists of five members each serving a two-year term.
They meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
