Planning Commission

Florence Planning Commission

The Florence Planning Commission serves both advisory and authoritative roles on long-range and regulatory city planning and development including reviewing zoning and land use matters, annexations, the subdivision of property, and disposition of right of ways, alleys, and easements.

The Planning Commission also reviews technical considerations such as traffic impact, required public improvements such as sidewalks, roads, utilities, and stormwater discharge requirements for new residential and commercial development.

The Planning Commission is comprised of nine members appointed in accordance with the Code of Alabama. Of the nine members, one member is an administrative appointee of the city and one member is appointed from the City Council with each serving a four-year term. The remaining seven members are appointed by the Mayor and serve six-year terms. The Florence Planning Commission was established by ordinance on May 27, 1940.
