About the Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is a seven-member group of citizens appointed by the City Council to consider land use planning matters.  The Commission renders determinations and makes recommendations to the City Council on a variety of land use matters, including changes of the City’s General Plan, Specific Plans and Land Use Code.  They also provide discretionary review for land use matters such as Conditional Use Permits, Variances, and Subdivisions.
