The Planning and Zoning Commission is comprised of Maypearl citizens who act as an advisory board to City Council in regards to land use and zoning-related matters. Members are appointed by the City Council for two-year terms.
The planning and zoning commission’s role in the community is to ensure that development adheres to the city’s guidelines and regulations in city ordinances and laws of the State of Texas. This includes residential and commercial properties, public facilities, open spaces, as well as overall land use within the city. The Planning and Zoning Commission’s primary responsibilities include the following:
- Provide recommendations to City Council on matters concerning zoning and site plans, public improvements, civic improvements, street changes, the routing of public utilities, and strategic planning.
- Provide recommendations to City Council regarding updates or amendments to the city’s Master Plan, which guides growth, development, beautification and infrastructure for its citizens.
- Review and make recommendations to City Council on the development of property.
- Review and make recommendations to City Council on platting of property.
- Consider and hold public hearings when required on development and land use issues.
The planning and zoning commission meetings are open to the general public; however, the meetings are usually attended by those who require approval by the City to pursue their building efforts. More information on when you must attend a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting can be found on the Permitting and Applications section of this website.
Meetings are held the 1st Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m. except when this date falls on a City holiday. The meeting calendar and agendas can be found on the home page of this website.
