The Planning Commission consists of five members, appointed by the Board of Supervisors, representing each of the supervisorial districts within the County. Each Commissioner holds office for a term of four (4) years and/or until the appointment and qualification of a successor. The Commission considers and takes action on land use applications including parcel maps, conditional use permits, variances, site plan reviews, appeals, etc. The Commission also makes recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on items such as rezoning, general plan amendment, text amendment, and subdivision map applications, where the Board must take the final action.
The Commission typically meets at 6:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. If there are a sufficient number of items scheduled, a second meeting will be held on the third Tuesday of the month. Meetings are held at the Resource Management Agency (200 W 4th Street, Suite 3100, Madera) or the Coarsegold Community Center (35600 Highway 41,
Coarsegold). The location of each meeting is based on where the majority of agenda items are located.
