*  Message from the Mayor  *

Residents of Grand Island:

People are asking me for locations in the city where coronavirus may be present.  On March 28, 2020, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services determined that we have confirmed cases of community spread of coronavirus in the city.  This means that we must assume that coronavirus is everywhere.  Please take extra precautions using this assumption.   Please keep at least 6 feet of space between you and other people, wash your hands regularly, and do not touch your face.

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.
