The Planning and Zoning Commission advises the City Council on a variety of planning and land use issues brought before the City. The commission prepares and maintains the city’s Comprehensive Plan and advises the City Council on matters regarding implementation of the plan.
The commission also conducts public hearings and makes recommendations to the City Council on proposed changes affecting zoning and land uses within the city, considers site plan reviews, conditional use permits, interim use permits, annexations, subdivisions, vacations, and variances in conformance to the Montgomery Subdivision Ordinance and Zoning Code. The Planning and Zoning Commission forwards information it gathers from these public hearings, along with their own recommendations, to the City Council and/or Board of Zoning Adjustments and Appeals. The City Council and/or Board of Zoning Adjustments and Appeals makes the final decision concerning planning consideration applications.
Land Use Applications and supporting documentation must be submitted by these dates to ensure city staff has adequate time to review the application and to ensure all parties that are required by law receive notice.
Information regarding land use applications, zoning permits and other planning and zoning considerations can be found within the Planning and Zoning section or at City Hall.
Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Minutes are available after approval at a later date.
The ex offico members include one (1) member of the City Council who is selected by Mayor and approved by the City Council and the City Administrator. Council Member Bob Taraba, and the City Administrator Brian Heck currently fulfilled these roles.
