Students on Commissions Program

2017-2018 Students on Commissions Program

Minnetrista is seeking students to participate in its NEW Students on Commissions Program! Please see details below and apply today!

Planning Commission

The Planning Commission plays a central role in the planning process in two important ways. First, it acts as an advisory board to the City Council on all planning and development issues, including the development and maintenance of the Comprehensive Plan. Second, the commission assures that the Comprehensive Plan is implemented by reviewing development applications on a case-by-case basis.

The Planning Commission is a permanent committee made up of seven (7) citizens who have been appointed by the City Council to serve four (4) year terms. Planning Commissioners are lay people who do not collect a salary or stipend to perform their duties.

The commission reviews and recommends actions on matters related to planning and development in light of federal, state, and local regulations and potential environmental effects. It also listens to testimony from citizens and other interested parties, holding public hearings when required by state and municipal law.

Meetings are held the fourth Monday of every month at 7pm in the Minnetrista Council Chambers.
