The Lincoln City Planning Commission is a seven-member citizen advisory body appointed by the City Council. Planning Commissioners are registered voters and generally live inside the city limits; however, up to two members may live outside the city limits but inside the urban growth boundary. No more than two members may have the same occupation. Commissioners serve for 4-year terms.
Generally, the Planning Commission is responsible for assisting the City Council in developing and revising the city’s comprehensive plan and development standards that implement the plan (such as the zoning and subdivision ordinances). The Commission also makes decisions on land use matters such as subdivisions, conditional use permits, planned unit developments, and variances. The Planning Commission occasionally participates in joint work sessions on special topics with the City Council.
The city provides all Planning Commissioners with a laptop computer to use during their term. Planning staff and the city attorney provide initial and on-going training to commissioners. To aid the planning commissioners in their deliberations, city staff prepares a report of background information, analysis, and recommendations for each matter the Commission considers, and sends it to the commissioners several days in advance of the meeting.
