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.
Meetings of the Planning Commission are held on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of every month at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, unless adjusted for holidays or other scheduling conflicts. The Planning Commission meetings are open to the public.
The Planning Commission also acts as the City’s Street Tree and Parkway Committee. In this capacity, the Commission reviews all requests for street tree removals and plantings. For additional information or to request planting or removal of street trees, please contact the Planning Division at (619) 336-4310.
