How do I Show Support or Opposition to a Project?
Contact the Community Development Department to let us know your concerns or support for your project. Local knowledge is key to determining outcomes of projects because of information that this department or others may not be aware of. Written letters or email sent to us during comment periods will be official public record.
What is the Planning Commission?
The Planning Commission is a group of 9 appointed volunteers (3 from each district) who are charged with many important current and long range planning functions. They meet on the second Tuesday of every month at 6 PM, and meetings are open to the public and are held at the Cusick Community Center. To get any more information on the next scheduled meeting contact the Community Development Department.

When should I go to a Commission meeting?
There are typically several instances when people attend the Planning Commission meetings such as the following:
1. Certain projects are heard and decided by the Planning Commission rather than the Community Development Department. Examples include long plat subdivisions, RV resorts, and County Planning. If you are attempting to receive a class 2 or class 4 permit, your application will be reviewed by the Planning Commission.
2. Interested parties will come to ask questions, express concern, and show approval or disapproval of projects being reviewed by the Planning Commission.
3. The Planning Commission is the appellate body for the decisions of the Community Development. If you do not agree with a decision made by the Community Development Department you may ask to have your application reviewed by the Planning Commission.
