About the Planning Commission
The Saint Paul Planning Commission is a 21-member advisory body made up of resident volunteers appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council. The Planning Commission makes recommendations on planning and zoning issues, studies, and amendments. The Commission and its sub-committees (Zoning Committee, Comprehensive and Neighborhood Planning Committee, and Transportation Committee) take on municipal planning issues as required by law. The Planning Commission also holds public hearings where members of the public can be heard.
Planning Commission members serve three-year terms, with an opportunity to be reappointed for two terms.
