The Planning Commission reviews applications for zoning district changes (including Precise Plans and Planned Unit Developments), major subdivisions, code amendments, and generally all major planning documents adopted by the city. For most applications (zoning, subdivisions, code amendments, etc.) the Planning Commission provides a recommendation that is forwarded to the City Council who has final approval.
Applications for the Planning Commission can be found online and are submitted to the City Planner to be placed on a Planning Commission hearing agenda. It is recommended that applicants meet with the City Planner prior to any applications being submitted to determine the best course of action.
