Planning Commission & Board of Zoning Adjustments (PC-BZA)

The Planning Commission (PC) hears and recommends to the City Council on matters relating to the City's General Plan, advises on matters affecting the development of the City and recommends zoning matters such as planned unit developments, subdivision of land or amendments to the Zoning Code or Zoning Map.

The Board of Zoning Adjustments (BZA) hears and decides upon applications for zoning matters, such as Conditional Use Permits, Site Plan Review, Sign Programs, and appeals of certain administrative decisions. The Board has seven members who serve four-year terms.
