The City Administrator has suspended all non-essential regular City Committee/Commission meetings beginning March 12, 2020, as a precautionary and preventive measure for COVID-19. Non-essential meetings are defined as anything not having a state or federal timeline for funding. The goal is to keep City employees healthy so that they can continue providing essential functions to our citizens.
Staff is currently working on the technical details of facilitating electronic meetings for the City Council and Planning Commission and that is the priority. Once that is worked out staff will turn efforts to helping facilitate regular Commission and Committee meetings.
The Ashland Planning Commission is composed of seven citizens under the authority of Ashland Municipal Code, Chapter 2.12 and Chapter 2.14 (Hearings Board). Generally, the Planning Commission is responsible for the city's comprehensive plan and development standards that implement that plan.
Regular Planning Commission Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Civic Center Council Chambers, 1175 East Main Street and are open to the public. The meetings are usually broadcast live on RVTV, Channel 9 (Ashland Fiber Network) and Channel 180 (Charter Communications).
Planning Commission Study Sessions are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Civic Center Council Chambers, 1175 East Main Street and are open to the public.
Please remember that other than staff, the people listed below are volunteers working on behalf of our community and should only be contacted on matters related to their particular commission, committee or board.
