Planning Commission

Overview and Function

  • The New Hope Planning Commission consists of nine members who serve three-year terms.
  • The commission makes recommendations to the City Council on matters affecting zoning, platting, residential, commercial and industrial expansions and redevelopment, and public improvements.
  • The Planning Commission has two sub-committees. The Codes and Standards subcommittee is responsible for reviewing text amendments to the City Code. The Design and Review subcommittee meets with applicants to review site and building expansion projects before they come before the full commission.
