What does the Planning Commission do?

The Planning Commission consists of 7 resident volunteers appointed by the City Council to make decisions or advise the Council on land use and property development issues. The Commission assures that new development is consistent with our long-range General Plan, State laws and other public policies that advance the interests of our community. The Commission also heard appeals of decisions made by lower level hearing bodies. Learn more about the Planning Commission!
