The Planning Commission (PC), established in 1982, is coordinated by the Design and Development Department and is comprised of five members appointed by the City Council. The Commission’s regularly scheduled meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers. The Commission’s primary function is to carry out the powers and duties as prescribed in the Planning and Zoning Laws of the State of California and the City of La Quinta Zoning Ordinance, as well as to serve as an advisory body to the City Council. The Planning Commission’s duties include developing and maintaining the City’s General Plan, consideration of new development applications, design review of new developments, development of specific plans, and similar planning duties.
