Planning Commission

The Planning Commission meets on the last Tuesday of the month at 5:30. Any application or permit needing review has to be turned in to the City Clerk no later than the 1st day of the month to be included in the agenda for the planning commission meeting. The Planning Commission meets to review application/permit, review ordinances pertaining to said application/review then sends to Council for approval (or with recommendation). This body also works closely with the city engineers, attorney, etc prior to approving an application or permit and prior to sending to council for final approval. While this group does not meet monthly, they do meet when there is something to review. They are a dedicated group who are knowledgeable of the codes and ordinances, are actively involved in reviewing ordinances, applications, etc in order to provide input to the council. This commission regularly reviews plans, ordinances and policies in order to make updates and recommendations.
