Planning Commission
About the Planning Commission
The Planning Commission's purpose is to serve the Board of Supervisors in an advisory capacity on matters of planning and zoning by preparing and recommending plans, ordinances, capital improvement programs and similar documents, and reviewing development proposals.  The Commission also reviews and makes determinations on requests made pursuant to Section 15.2-2232 Va. Code Ann.  Specifically, their tasks include review of and recommendation on rezoning and special use permit applications, plan review and development, and ordinance review and development.  The five members of the Planning Commission are appointed by the Board of Supervisors, one from each election district, and one non-voting liaison from the Board of Supervisors is also appointed.
