Comments to Mayor and Council

Under our mandate, the Commission is looked to for comment on city issues on Council’s current or upcoming agendas. Planning staff often meet with Commissioners to seek feedback on policy and planning directions. On some topics, the Commission undertakes a deeper study of a topic leading to a written comment to Council. The comment may be presented during the Council meeting on the agenda item, or submitted as a memorandum to Mayor and Council.

Here is a sampling of  the Planning Commission’s comments to Mayor and Council on selected topics:
