The Planning Commission’s primary role, as its name implies, is to plan. A Planning Commission is a body of citizens that serve within local government, acting as an advisory group to the municipal governing body on issues and policies related to planning, land use regulation, and community development. Planning Commissioners act as citizen planners and work to develop plans and implementation policies that affect how their community manages changes in growth and development.
Planning Commissioners are appointed by the Cordova City Council and represent Cordova at large. Planning Commissioners do not represent any particular person, business, or group within Cordova. Planning Commissioners should strive to provide input and guidance that will positively affect the Cordova and excuse themselves from any actions where a conflict of interest could be perceived.
