Plan Commission Meeting Schedule

Mission Statement:

It is the mission of the Planning Services Division to advise the City Manager, Common Council, Boards and Commissions and community stakeholders on land use issues that impact community growth and redevelopment. The Planning Services Division is responsible for helping to implement and maintain the City’s Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance and other related community planning documents.

Community planning activities include short and long-range planning, site plan review, historic preservation, housing and neighborhood development, economic development, sustainability, transportation and mobility, arts and beautification, and urban design. As such, Planning Services staff act as staff liaison for 8 city boards or commissions that includes: Plan Commission, Landmarks, Sustainability, Pedestrian and Bicycle, Zoning Appeals, Business Improvement District, Public Arts and Beautification, and Extraterritorial Zoning.

The division oversees applications for both administrative permits (i.e permits that can be issued by Division staff) as well as items requiring action by a board or commission (i.e. Plan Commission, Board of Appeals, etc.).
