Development Review Commission


The Development Review Commission holds public meetings and hearings, to provide analysis and recommendations to the City Council regarding general land use policies and applications where the Commission has recommendatory power, and to render final decisions on specified applications where the Commission has final decision-making power, including, but not limited to, all aspects of a proposed and future development. The Commission has the duty to carry out the provisions and intent of the General Plan and the Zoning and Development Code.

The Development Review Commission is composed of seven (7) members and three (3) alternates.
