OverviewLamar County Planning Commission is an appointed body of citizens of Lamar County representing all parts of the County which are included within the zoned area. The Planning Commission is tasked with reviewing and making recommendations to the Board of Supervisors for proposed projects within the zoned area. The actions of the Planning Commission are strictly a review and recommendation body of the County Administration which allows for the opportunity for more public interaction, as well a way to have a more site specific focused discussion on the impacts of developments within the zoned area.
MeetingsGenerally the Commission as of the June 2011 meeting will meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 2:00pm in the Chancery Courthouse Board of Supervisors chambers. The commission does not conduct its monthly meeting if there are no agenda items applied for consideration that month. The deadlines to submit applications as well the meeting dates are located within our 2010 Planning Commission listed below.
