The Planning Commission and its role in the process
The Planning Commission (PC) is charged with aiding staff in the development and review of the Comprehensive Plan. A member of the Community Participation Team (CPT) will serve as a liaison to this group through the Comprehensive Plan work session phase. The PC considers the citizen comments collected by the CPT along with staff’s research, statistics, and reports on the various sections of the Plan to develop policies and create the actual Plan text. Another important function of the PC is that they review the applications of landowners who wish to change the Land Use designation on their properties. The PC will also recommend the updated Plan to the Board of Supervisors towards the conclusion of the process.
