The Planning Department provides staff support to a number of Boards and Commissions throughout the City including the Planning Commission, the Board of Zoning Adjustment, and the Historic Preservation Commission. Much of the business transacted by the Planning Commission requires ultimate approval from the City Council; therefore, a considerable amount of effort is expended in preparing planning-related information for the City Manager’s Office to place before the City Council for consideration at its bi-monthly meeting.
