City Government > Boards, Commissions and Authorities > Planning Commission
The Planning Commission develops the community’s master plan, reviews site plans for larger developments, reviews and issues special use permits, and makes recommendations about zoning ordinance changes.
The Planning Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor subject to the approval of the City Commission. Planning Commissioners must be qualified electors of the City except one non-qualified elector may be appointed to the Board. The Mayor and Commission prefer a diverse Board by geography, occupation, employer, ethnicity, and gender.
The regular meetings of the Planning Commission take place on the first Monday of every month in the commission chambers at the Alma Municipial Building starting at 6:00 pm.
