Commission Facts

There is no provision in the City’s Municipal Code that prevents a member from serving on multiple City committees or commissions. However, the City’s custom and practice is to avoid allowing a member to serve on multiple boards at the same time. In addition, Planning Commissioners do not serve on any other City legislative body governed by the Brown Act.

Elected officials are not permitted to serve on the Planning Commission.
