Planning Commission

The primary responsibility of the Planning Commission is to advise the City Council on matters of land use and the General Plan. The seven-member Commission, appointed by the City Council, makes recommendations for approval and can deny applications for zoning changes. The Commission acts on subdivisions, development plans, and public right-of-way dispositions; they also hear appeals concerning decisions made by the Community & Economic Development Department and Planning Division staff.
