Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is a nine-member advisory commission that includes an appointed City Council liaison.  Serving as a Planning Commissioner is a great introduction to local government.  The Planning Commission's primary function is to help implement City plans by making recommendations to the City Council on long range planning issues, including the 2040 Comprehensive Plan.  The Planning Commission is also responsible for review and recommendation of land use and subdivision applications  as well as other matters that are planning and zoning related.   

Regular meetings of the Planning Commission are held at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month with a second meeting  reserved for the third Tuesday of the month.  Special meetings and workshops of the Planning Commission are scheduled as needed.

Historical agenda packets and minutes will be made available at some point in 2022. 

The agenda packet for the August 16, 2022 Special/Rescheduled Planning Commission Meeting can be found HERE. 


The Planning Commission is seeking applicants for a three-year term starting in January of 2023.  

The City of Mound appreciates residents’ participation in these important advisory commissions.  Each commission plays a part in shaping the policies, projects and programs that preserve the quality of life we enjoy.

Applications are due on or before Monday, October 3rd and applicants must be available to attend the November 1 Planning Commission meeting to participate in interviews.  Final appointments will be made by the City Council at the December 13th final meeting of the year.
