Planning Commission Process

1. Draft documents are transmitted to the Planning Commission for review.

2. Department staff briefs the Planning Commission at a public meeting, providing background information, going over the proposal documents and answering the Planning Commission's questions.   Electronic and paper copies are available for public review in person and online.

3.  Public hearing is held by the Planning Commission.  This is an opportunity for citizens to approach the Planning Commission and provide comments about the proposal. It is an opportunity to ask questions, provide input and express an opinion.  It is very helpful for the Planning Commission to hear specifics to better facilitate their deliberations.

4.  Changes are proposed based on agency and public comments.

5. Planning Commission deliberates at a public meeting.  The public is encouraged to come and listen, but there is not the opportunity for public testimony. The Planning Commission deliberates, asks questions of staff, discussing what they've learned in public hearings andwritten comments.

6. Planning Commission takes action.   After considering the information provided, written and oral testimony, the Planning Commission ultimately comes to a recommendation that they will forward to the Board of County Commissioners.
