  • General Information

    Purpose:  Planning is a visionary task to lead residents in creating and building a view of their future. Local planning commissions are established to guide land use and development at the municipal level. The planning commission has the responsibility of developing and implementing a comprehensive plan as well as reviewing proposals for new developments and public projects. The planning commission requires technical skills and expertise to provide advice to the City. The planning commission is the City’s surrogate on land use issues, providing assistance by taking time to conduct in-depth research on important planning issues and then make informed recommendations for action. As an independent advisory body, the planning commission gives the City the assurance that the important issues of land use and future growth are given the necessary attention.

     

    Recommendations to public authorities; approval of plans.

    [Ord. 16-1962 § 1, passed 5-9-1962]
