Planning Commission

The City of Venice Planning Commission proposes principles and policies for guiding action affecting development in the city and ensuring development is in conformance with the city’s comprehensive plan, the Concurrency Management Ordinance, land development codes and development standards. As the local planning agency, the commission makes the final decision to approve or deny site and development plans and special exceptions. Commissioners provide recommendations to City Council for annexations, subdivision development and amendments to the land development code. Applicants may appeal commission decisions to City Council.

Members must be residents of the city. Planning Commission meetings take place on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 1:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at Venice City Hall.
