Planning Commission

Public Hearings & Commissions

The seven member Planning Commission provides advice, insight and leadership to the Mayor and City Council on all matters affecting development throughout our City. Commissioners are objective and independent advisors who are appointed to serve four-year terms, and may serve a maximum of two terms.

While the Commission serves as an advisory body on matters related to zoning and the general plan, Commissioners also serve as the public hearing authority for a variety of development applications. Throughout the year, the Commission reviews numerous requests from homeowners and developers, including requests for Conditional or Administrative Use Permits, Standards Variances, Local Coastal Development Permits, Site Plan Reviews and Subdivision requests.
