Good planning is essential for effective communities. Every Town/City has the responsibility to decide how to use its land and guide the form and shape the Town will take in the future.
The Planning Commission is entrusted to help set land-use goals and evaluate individual project proposals to ensure that they are consistent with the Town’s adopted plans. Almost every decision of the Commission must strike a balance between private benefit and the overall public good.
During the decision-making process, the Commission relies on the Town’s General Plan and Zoning Ordinance. The General Plan, which governs the Town’s physical shape and character, is our major policy document.
In order to carry out its responsibilities, the Commission also considers subdivision ordinances, the State Planning Law and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
