Local Planning Agency
This agency reviews and makes recommendations to the BCC regarding proposed amendments to the comprehensive plan and land development code, new or major modifications to a Type 3 Use establishment, development agreements, development master plans, zoning changes and other matters as assigned by the BCC.
The Local Planning Agency’s seven members are nominated by a county commissioner member, then appointed by the entire BCC. Terms run concurrently with the nominating commissioners.
