The Planning Commission is charged with development of the General Plan, implementation and administration of the Zoning Ordinance, and review of development applications. Click here for the responsibilities of the Planning Commission.

Work Plan:

  • Update the zoning ordinances and zoning map to ensure consistency with the General Plan and Downtown Specific Plan.
  • Prepare the Downtown Design Guidelines after completion of the Downtown Specific Plan.
  • Exercise the powers and duties prescribed by statute and ordinance and as assigned by the City Council.
  • Hear and decide land use permits, variances, design review, hillside development permits, and subdivision applications.
  • Advise the City Council on administration of laws governing approval of rezonings, planned developments, and ordinance changes.
  • Evaluate planning procedures to provide services in the most expeditious fashion without sacrificing quality of review.
  • Evaluate the existing level of review for new development and where necessary to implement General Plan goals, recommend changes to the City Council.

The Planning Commission typically meets at 7:00 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month in the Lafayette Library & Learning Center's Community Hall at 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd. Please see the City Calendar for details.
