Planning Commission

The Tooele City Planning Commission is a seven member citizen board, with two additional alternate members, appointed by the City Council and the Mayor. The members serve staggered four-year terms and are led by a Chairperson and Vice Chairperson elected each year by the Commission members. The Commission conducts meetings and operates according to City and State laws governing procedure, as well as their own bylaws.

The Planning Commission makes a variety of recommendations and decisions on a wide range of land use items for the City and its residents. The Planning Commission makes recommendations to the City Council on applications for subdivisions, annexations, zoning designations, amendments to land use ordinances of the City Code, official City maps, the General Plan, and other various plans. The Planning Commission has also been delegated the decision-making authority for applications such as Conditional Use Permits and commercial site plans. The Planning Commission holds public hearings on most items and receives input from the public to facilitate citizen involvement and to gather relevant facts to aid in making recommendations and decisions.

The Tooele City Planning Commission generally meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Meetings are held at Tooele City Hall, 90 North Main Street, in the City Council Chambers.
