Planning Commission

  1. ATTENTION: Due to the provision of the Governor’s Executive Orders N-25-20 and N-29-20 to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the City of Santa Rosa has postponed all in-person public meetings until further notice. However, the City is conducting virtual public meetings with streaming video and telephone options. Thank you for your understanding as the City continues to take measures to protect the health and safety of our community. For more information about the City of Santa Rosa’s response to the coronavirus, visit srcity.org/PreventTheSpread.
  2. To encourage participation in public City meetings, the City of Santa Rosa has implemented new online tools where residents can view public meetings and provide eComments on agenda items from the comfort of home. Public comment options vary by meeting, please check the information on each meeting agenda posted here: santa-rosa.legistar.com/Calendar
The Planning Commission provides an invaluable service to the City of Santa Rosa by implementing plans, ordinances and policies relating to land use matters; assisting in writing and implementing the General Plan and area plans; holding public hearings and acting on proposed changes to the Zoning Code, Zoning Map, General Plan, tentative subdivision maps, and undertaking special planning studies as needed. Ultimately the Planning Commission is charged with carrying out the California Planning and Zoning Laws in the City of Santa Rosa and was established by Santa Rosa City Ordinance 1415.
