About the Commission

The Planning Commission (PC) serves as the public's first opportunity to comment on proposed planning and zoning changes. Its duty is to engage in a continuing program for the physical, social, and economic growth, development, and redevelopment of the City. Additionally, the PC prepares and periodically revises the City's Comprehensive Plan and all implementation measures required to carry out the goals of the plan, including zoning ordinances, subdivision regulations, and an Official Zoning Map.

Revised Zoning Ordinances

The Planning Commission may prepare and recommend revised zoning ordinances or amendments to the Ordinance to the City Council and review and make recommendations concerning amendments to the Municipal Zoning and Development Ordinance (MZDO). The PC reviews zoning change requests and assignments, Planned Development District (PDD) applications, and Master Plan requests. Based on these reviews, the PC makes official recommendations to City Council on these projects.
