Planning Commission Volunteers

The Planning Commission consists of nine citizen volunteers appointed by the Board of Commissioners (Board) to serve four-year terms. The Planning Commission advises the Board on land use matters such as the adoption, revision, or repeal of elements of Washington County's Comprehensive Plan. For some types of plan amendments, the Planning Commission makes the final decision for the County. Planning Commission decisions may be appealed to the Board.
