The Planning Commission (PC) generally meets the first Monday of every month.  Meetings begin at 5:15 p.m.  Meetings are held at the 3rd Floor of City Hall (City Council Chambers), 1737 Main Street.  The Planning Commission may only hear items that have been placed upon the agenda by the Zoning Division in accordance with Title 30, Chapter 4 of the Code of Laws of South Carolina.

In the interest of public health and as authorized by City Council, the Commission is currently conducting their meetings virtually.  Accordingly, members of the public and/or media who wish to observe the meetings may do so remotely by streaming the meetings through CityTV.  Members of the Commission will have the ability to remotely participate in voting and operational procedures via telephone or other means of electronic communication.  

The public may submit letters and statements via email to [email protected] either in advance of or during the meetings.  Please be sure to include your name and the case information, such as the address and topic of the request. Further public participation instructions are provided on the agendas. Please note: to allow for timely and equal participation for all members of the public who wish to comment on a case, letters or emails submitted to be read into the record during the meeting may contain up to but no more than 500 words. If longer written communication is desired, then that may be submitted to [email protected] up to 4pm the day before the pending PC meeting; it will be forwarded to PC members for their perusal prior to the meeting.
