Planning Commission

The Planning Commission has the authority to approve, conditionally approve, or deny design review permits, use permits, subdivision maps, parcel maps, variances, and associated environmental determinations.

The Planning Commission also serves in an advisory capacity to the City Council on other planning matters. The Planning Commission reviews and makes recommendations to the City Council on rezone requests, general plan amendments, and ordinance amendments. All Planning Commission recommendations are forwarded to the City Council for final action.

The Planning Commission normally meets on the  third Thursday of the month at 7:10 p.m. The meetings are held in the City Council Chambers at 118 Orchard St. The Planning Commission may also hold "special meetings" at other times, subject to separate public notice of these times. 

The Planning Commission is also responsible for the Master Plan. Click here to go learn more about the City's Master Plan.

If you are interested in serving on the planning commission, please submit a letter of interest to the City Administrator for consideration.
