The Planning Commission

The Commission reviews and proposes amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, and makes recommendations to the City Council, using public input, on amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and Land Use (Zoning) Code. All other city boards and commissions coordinate their Comprehensive Plan and land use activities with the Planning Commission.

The Planning Commission also recommends and reviews studies of geographic subareas in the city. The Commission does not review site-specific development proposals.
