Metro Planning Department

Planning Commission Meeting to be Held Virtually

The regularly scheduled April 9 Planning Commission meeting will be virtually held. The Commission will focus the meeting on cases published on the consent agenda. The Department also anticipates presenting several zoning cases that must meet procedural deadlines for Commission review. Staff plans to recommend that all other cases with public comments be deferred. The draft agenda will be published on the Planning Department web site this Friday. We welcome public input on the draft Agenda.

Looking forward to future meetings, the Department is working with ITS to identify a range of opportunities for our community to provide feedback to the Commission. While we urge the public to send comments in writing, we continue to explore other opportunities for residents to participate in and shape planning decisions while simultaneously adhering to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other federal, state, and local agencies for COVID-19 prevention. As we finalize those strategies, we will notice Councilmembers and residents.

Please visit our Planning Department Coronavirus Procedures page for updated guidance regarding public meetings.

The Planning Department provides design guidance, reviews zoning and subdivision applications, and shapes public policy related to growth, preservation, and development. The Planning Department also provides recommendations to the Planning Commission.

We are committed to proactive, community-based planning founded on public participation, and to the building of livable, sustainable communities.
