The Department of Planning & Development has the responsibility for preparing and updating the City’s Comprehensive Plan, a policy guide for both public and private investment in the future as well as land use decisions. The Department also administers the Zoning Ordinance by processing requests for the rezoning of property, special uses and for variances from the regulations. Requests for annexation of land to be brought into the City are handled by the Department. The application deadline for all matters going through the public hearing process is the first Friday of each month at 12:00 noon.
The Department supports the City’s Planning Commission, an appointed body that makes recommendations to the City Council concerning planning matters, including rezoning, variance, and special use requests. Planning Commissioners must be a resident of the City and are appointed to four-year, staggered terms.
The Planning Commission holds its meeting on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. except November when it is rescheduled because of Thanksgiving Day. Public hearings to receive comments from the community regarding applications are held on each case followed by a vote on a recommendation. The matters are then forwarded to the City Council for a final decision. The City Council action takes place the following month on the second Thursday with a work session/public hearing on the preceding Monday. All Planning Commission and the City Council meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers in City Hall located at 4303 Lawrenceville Road.
