Planning & Zoning Commission

The Planning and Zoning Commission is composed of seven members who serve three year staggered terms and are nominated by the Mayor and confirmed by the Council. All members must reside within the city limits of the City of Palmer.

The Commission meets on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. (unless noticed otherwise) in the Palmer City Hall Council Chambers located at 231 W. Evergreen Avenue (use the cobb Street entrance).

P&Z Commission Purpose

The Commission acts on rezoning actions, conditional use permits, variances, planned unit developments (for PUD’s) and changes to the Palmer Municipal Code in Title 17, Zoning.

Time Tables for Planning and Zoning Commission Review

Several planning and zoning actions require approval by the City of Palmer Planning & Zoning Commission or a Hearing Officer. These include:

  • Rezoning Property
  • Issuance and Modification of Conditional Use Permits
  • Variances
  • Construction of a Building in a Public Use District

Applications for any of these actions can be obtained from the Department of Community Development. After the application is received, the fee paid, and staff has determined the application to be complete, a public hearing will be scheduled. It takes at least 30 days to process all the paperwork and ensure public notice from the time the application is deemed complete to the date of the public hearing. The Community Development staff will be happy to confirm a schedule once the application has been received.
