Planning and Zoning Commission

The Johnstown Planning and Zoning Commission is a committee of seven residents who have been appointed by the Town Council to review matters related to planning and development. This Commission also serves as the Board of Adjustment and Board of Appeals. The Commission meets on a regular, as-required basis to consider land use matters, including  the Comprehensive Land Use Plan, sub-area specific plans, and to hold public hearings regarding property-specific annexations, special use permits, and subdivisions. The Commission is an advisory body and makes recommendations to the Town Council. Because the Commission focuses on community planning issues, it is a valuable intermediary between the public and the Town Council. The Planning & Development Department provides research and technical and administrative support to the Commission.
