Planning Commission

The Planning Commission, a quasi-judicial body, consists of seven members appointed by the Lakewood City Council to serve four-year terms. One member is appointed from each ward with two other members appointed at-large.

The Commission conducts public hearings on rezoning and subdivision applications for specific parcels of land in order to make recommendations to the City Council. The Planning Commission is the approval authority for most special use permits and waivers.  The Planning Commission makes decisions and recommendations based on the Comprehensive Plan and requirements in the City’s development regulations.

The Planning Commission is responsible for the preparation, update and adoption of a Comprehensive Land Use Plan for the continued growth and development of the City. The Planning Commission also reviews and makes recommendations on such items as the capital improvement and preservation program, ordinance revisions, neighborhood plans and other planning programs. Planning Commission members are compensated $100 per month. The members appointed to serve as the Planning Commission shall also serve as and perform the duties of the Board of Adjustment.
