About the Commission
The Planning Commission consists of 7 regular members and 2 alternates, which are appointed by the City Council for 3-year terms. Most resident contact with the Planning Commission comes through public hearings for subdivisions of land, rezoning, or variances from the Zoning Ordinance. The commission forwards information from these hearings, along with their recommendations to the City Council for final action. The city's Planning Department does all research and paperwork for the commission.
