Planning & 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. 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 on land use planning. Because the Commission focuses on community planning issues, it is a valuable intermediary between the public and the Town Council.  The Town Planner provides research and technical and administrative support to the Commission. 

Residents who are interested in serving on the Commission are welcome to submit an application. Vacancies occur from time to time. 


The Planning & Zoning Commission meets -  as hearings and business items require  - on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Town Hall, 450 S. Parish Ave.
