Planning Commission

The Planning Commission consists of seven regular members and two alternate members who are Provo residents, appointed by the Mayor. The Planning Commission reviews and approves or disapproves project plans and decides on all applications for Conditional Use Permits, among other duties (see Provo City Code 14.04). View the Planning Commission Bylaws. View the 2017 Meeting Schedule for meeting dates and application deadlines.

Section 14.04.050 of the Provo City Code allows certain items before the Planning Commission to be heard and decided upon in an Administrative Hearing conducted by Community Development staff. Find those items under the Planning Commission Administrative Hearings section.

The hearings begin at 5:30PM in the Municipal Council Chambers with a pre-meeting at 4:30PM in the Community Development Conference Room for the first meeting of the month, and at 5:00PM for the second meeting of the month.
