The Planning & Zoning Commission is the primary advisory board to the Town Council on development issues. These land use matters include rezoning requests, ordinance revisions, approving plats, comprehensive planning, tree preservation, and other issues regarding new growth and existing development in the Town and extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ).

The Planning & Zoning Commission is comprised of seven members and two alternates appointed by the Town Council. Commission members serve three-year staggered terms.
