About the Commission

The city's Planning Commission is, by state statute, responsible for determining many of the land use processes. The commission is tasked with identifying the needs of the city, establishing both short and long terms goals for the development of the city, and then writing and updating the city's Comprehensive Plan and recommending zoning ordinances which support those plans. In addition, it is the Planning Commission which approves street names, and hears requests for property rezoning. All meetings are open to the public.
