The Planning Commission plays a vital role in City government by reviewing, conducting hearings where applicable, and making recommendations to the City Council on amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, Titles 16 through 18 of the Ferndale Municipal Code, the City’s Official Zoning Map, and Shoreline Master Program.
They also make recommendations to Council regarding specific sub-area and neighborhood plans, and annexation requests. In order to fulfill these duties, the Commission has the authority to conduct research, undertake studies, hold hearings, find facts, submit reports and recommendations, and perform other legislative and planning functions as requested by the City Council. The Planning Commission consists of seven members appointed by the mayor and approved by the City Council, each Commissioner serving a four year term.
The Commission meets at 7 p.m. the second Wednesday after the first Monday of the month at City Council Chambers, 5694 Second Ave.
