About the Board

The board makes recommendations to City Council on discretionary land use approvals like zoning map changes, ordinance amendments, conditional and special uses, and major subdivisions. The Planning Board also makes recommendations to the City Council on appropriate areas for future growth, transportation improvements, recreation areas, preservation of open space and environmental resources, architecture and design considerations, and economic development in the form of a Comprehensive Plan.
