The Planning Commission is an advisory board serving the Zoning Ordinance. The Zoning Ordinance is the principal tool used to regulate land uses and development standards. Its primary purpose is to ensure public health, safety, and general welfare in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan.
Annually the mayor accepts applications for appointment and presentation at the first council meeting in January. Applications are accepted in December of each calendar year. In the event a vacancy occurs, the mayor will announce the opening at which time applications will be solicited.
