Planning and Zoning Roles and Responsibilities - Planning Commission
Download Full Text
The planning commission primarily acts in an advisory capacity to the elected body. The commission studies issues, oversees the preparation of plans and ordinances, and reviews and advises on development proposals. The planning commission can become an effective force in shaping the future of a community when its work leads to solving practical problems in an informed, impartial manner.
