The Planning Commission has four standing committees that represent major areas of responsibility of the Planning Commission.
Each standing committee has its own meeting times and agendas.
The comprehensive plan committee provides oversight to staff in the development of the comprehensive plan work program and the completion of the work program tasks, especially the annual amendments to the Comprehensive Plan. The Committee then makes recommendations to the Planning Commission regarding the annual amendments to the Comprehensive Plan.
The executive committee consists of the current chair, vice-chair and most recent past chair of the Planning Commission. The committee is responsible for reviewing the by-laws and standing rules of the commission for approval by the full commission and coordinates with the planning commission secretary on issues of strategic importance to the functioning of the Planning Commission.
The ordinance review Committee reviews ordinance amendment proposals with staff prior to consideration by the full commission. Ordinance amendments may be proposed by the City Council, the Planning Commission or city staff.
The site plan review committee makes recommendations to the Planning Commission on matters relating to site planning and architectural details of development proposals. Items may be recommended for committee review by the City Council, the Planning Commission or city staff.
