Metro Planning Department

Starting May 13, Planning Commission meetings will be held in person, with options to allow the public to participate remotely. Updates often occur, so please visit our Planning Department Coronavirus Procedures page frequently.

The Planning Department provides design guidance, reviews zoning and subdivision applications, and shapes public policy related to growth, preservation, and development. The Planning Department also provides recommendations to the Planning Commission.

We are committed to proactive, community-based planning founded on public participation, and to the building of livable, sustainable communities.
