Regional Planning Commission

Chapter 37 of the City Code provides for the establishment of a Regional Planning Commission as provided for by state statutes. An Interlocal Agreement was entered into with Hall County and the Villages of Alda, Cairo, Doniphan, Parkview and Wood River in 1967.

The purpose of the Regional Planning Commission is to provide for planning related services for the City of Grand Island, Hall County, and the villages of Alda, Cairo, Doniphan, and Wood River, as required by State Statues and the rules and regulations allowed by the City.  It is responsible for the development, maintenance, and implementation of the Comprehensive Plan, administration of the development review process, and administration of land use regulations established in the zoning and subdivision ordinances.  The Regional Planning Commission reviews and processes all development proposals and provides direct support to the public, the City Council, City staff, Hall County Board of Supervisors, and the governing boards of the small villages.

The joint planning commission shall include four members who reside in the City of Grand Island and who shall represent different, in sofar as possible,  professions or occupations in the City, and who shall be appointed by the Mayor, by and with approval of a three-fourths vote of the City Council.  The City Council representatives serve as non-voting liaisons.

The Regional Planning Commission meets the first Wednesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 100 E. First Street.
