Planning and Zoning Commission

Function
The Planning and Zoning Commission hears requests for zoning changes, planned unit developments, subdivisions, special exception permits, and amendments to the zoning code and subdivision code.  The Commission offers recommendations on these items to the City Council, who is the final approval authority.  The Planning and Zoning Commission also hears proposals for amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, which is the guiding document for the growth and future land use within Jefferson City.  The Commission is made up of 9 members and three alternate members, who are appointed for four year terms by the Mayor, subject to approval by the City Council.  The Commission's regular meeting time is at 5:15 PM on the second Thursday of each month in the Council Chamber in City Hall.  These are public meetings and citizens are given an opportunity to briefly voice their support or opposition to issues being considered by the Commission.  Planning and Zoning Commission meetings are broadcast live on JCTV Channel 81, digital cable channel 12.2.
