Planning Commission


Planning Commission

The Planning Commission (PC) reviews matters related to planning, zoning, and land use regulations.  Unlike the other committees, the Planning Commission is supported by the Community Development Director and reviews land use, conditional use permits, and land use variance applications.  These reviews are often done in a quasi-judicial hearing.  After review of the City Land Use Code, the Planning Commission provides final decision for conditional use permits and land use variances.  All other decisions are recommendations by the Planning Commission to the City Council.  The City Council will also refer proposed land use and building code changes to the Planning Commission for review and recommendation.

All committees have a set number of members with staggered terms and may also have residency requirements.  Details for each committee can be found in Chapter 2 of the Ouray City Code.
