What Does the Planning Commission Do?

Appointed by the Columbia County Board of Commissioners, the Planning Commission's purpose is to conduct public hearings relating to the Growth Management Plan and other special studies, rezonings, and variances. They are also charged with reviewing new preliminary subdivision plans and final plats. The information gathered at public hearings and the recommendations of the Planning Commission are forwarded to the Board of Commissioners.

The Board of Commissioners takes the final action on matters presented to them based on information from the public hearing, the recommendation of the Planning Commission and debate among the Board at the Commission meeting.
