Planning Commission

About the Planning Commission

The Planning Commission’s purpose is to serve the Board of Supervisors in an advisory capacity on matters of planning and zoning by preparing and recommending plans, ordinances, capital improvement programs and similar documents, and reviewing development proposals. The Commission also reviews and makes determinations on requests made pursuant to Section 15.2-2232 Va. Code Ann. Specifically, their tasks include review of and recommendation on rezoning and special use permit applications, plan review and development, and ordinance review and development. The five members of the Planning Commission are appointed by the Board of Supervisors, one from each election district, and one non-voting liaison from the Board of Supervisors is also appointed.

Planning Commission Meetings

Regular meetings of the Planning Commission are held on the first Thursday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in the Board Meeting Room of the Public Safety Building, located at 11282 Government Center Drive, Orange, unless there is a conflict with major holidays. The Commission reserves the same meeting time and place for the third Thursday of every month in the event a second monthly meeting is needed. However, this second monthly meeting is held on an as-needed basis. Special meetings of the Commission may be called as necessary.
