A Planning Commission’s primary duty is to plan. The Planning Commission is a body, typically made up of volunteer members of the community, who are appointed by the Mayor to serve as an advisory group to the municipality’s legislative body on issues and policies related to planning, land use regulations, and community development. A Planning Commissioner generally serves a term lasting between 2-4 years, and can be reappointed for additional terms depending on the community.
