The Planning Commission meets the third Wednesday of every month starting at 7 p.m., and is made up of seven citizen representatives.

One important task the commissioners take on is review of the Comprehensive Plan, a document guiding city policy and planning.

The commission also is charged with reviewing the zoning map, zoning code and other development codes, and completing a work plan provided by the council.
