The Planning Commission is responsible for making decisions and recommendations regarding the development of the community. The Planning Commission has final authority regarding subdivision maps and parcel maps, certain zoning matters and development plans, and occasionally matters appealed either from the staff level or Board of Zoning Adjustment. The Planning Commission makes recommendations to the City Council regarding annexations, rezonings, code amendments and most General Plan-related matters.
Commissioners must be a registered voter in the City of Modesto. Please note that application for this committee requires a financial disclosure statement (Statement of Economic Interests - Form 700) under State law.
