The Planning Commission is a group of seven County citizens appointed by the Board of Supervisors to serve as an advisory body on land use planning issues. There is one representative from each of the County's five election districts, plus two members who represent the County at large. The main purpose of the Planning Commission is to review each application, conduct a public hearing, and then make a recommendation of approval or denial to the Board of Supervisors. The Board makes the final decision on all applications. For more details, visit the Planning Commission webpage.
