The Planning & Zoning Board is appointed by the Board of Aldermen and serves as an advisory body to the Board on issues that come before it. The Planning Board makes recommendations about the city’s Unified Development Ordinance and specific development projects which must receive approval by the Board before proceeding.
There are 7 members on the Planning board: 5 from within the city limits and 2 from the Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). There is also one alternate for each area. Terms are for 3 years.
