Public Hearings

Planning and Zoning Commission Public Hearings

The purpose of a public hearing is to provide individuals the opportunity to express their views and provide evidence in support of those views, regarding a petition before the Planning and Zoning Commission (PZC). These opinions and evidence create the record, which the PZC relies upon for its deliberation and recommendation. The PZC's recommendation and record are then considered by the City Council, which makes the final determination (variance requests are determined by the PZC only).
