The Planning Division of Public Works and Development provides staff support to the Planning Commission. Staff reports are posted on the website as a courtesy approximately five days prior to the meeting.
The Planning Commission is composed of citizens appointed by the Board of County Commissioners. The commission is the final approving authority for the Comprehensive Plan and for location and extent approvals for public and quasi-public developments. The Planning Commission is advisory to the Board of County Commissioners on most other land use and development applications and for amendments to the Land Development Code. The commission conducts public hearings, considers business items and holds study sessions.
