Public Comments

Public hearings give applicants, residents and other interested parties the opportunity to provide testimony about pending development proposals and planning activities.

Planning Commission agendas indicate if a public hearing is required or planned for an item.

The Planning Commission forwards many of its recommendations to the City Council for final action. Plats and some preliminary plans do not require City Council action. Planning Commission action on plats and City Council action on other applications are final unless appealed to district court.

Share Your Comments

The Governing Body welcomes resident and public feedback about development proposals. Share your thoughts on applicable items during the public hearing at a meeting, or via email. Learn more about how to get involved in the development review process.

Once the public hearing is closed, a decision will be made on the item. Potential outcomes include decisions to

  • Approve an item
  • Approve an item with stipulations
  • Deny an item
  • Continue an item

Open for Public Comment

The following development applications are currently under consideration by the Planning Commission and open for public comment.

Online comments are accepted through 11 a.m. the day of the meeting for which an item is scheduled, in order to allow staff time to prepare a packet for the Planning Commission. Comments can also be made in-person at the meeting.
