Board Responsibilities

This commission consists of seven voting members and four alternates. The board is responsible for the city's zoning ordinance, planning for the future, and advising the City Council on matters concerning the orderly growth of the city. It establishes the overall planning policy in the city and incorporates it into the comprehensive plan. This board reviews special studies and makes recommendations on issues, and is responsible for preparation and update of the Plainview Comprehensive Plan for the physical development of the city. Administrative support is provided by the community services department.

The commission also reviews subdivision plats and the vacation and dedication of streets, alleys, easements, and other public facilities associated with plats. It is responsible for reviewing and advising the City Council on amendments to the subdivision and zoning ordinances, rezoning requests, annexation proposals, and miscellaneous studies.

Level of Authority: Recommendations for ordinance amendments are forwarded to the City Council for consideration. Unless appealed to the City Council, decisions to deny rezoning property, right-of-way vacations and dedications, annexation proposals, and miscellaneous studies are final.
