The Planning and Zoning Commission's responsibilities include making recommendations to the City Council regarding zoning, annexations, major public and private projects and any long range planning activities (such as City Plan or subarea plans) that require Council approval.
The Commission is also the final decision making authority regarding land use proposals including overall development plans, project development plans and any planned unit developments that remain from the City's previous land use regulations. In addition, the Commission coordinates with the Poudre and Thompson school districts and the Larimer County Planning Commission.
