About the Commission

The Planning Commission is governed in all respects and performs duties as prescribed by applicable state and local laws. The primary purpose of the Commission is to maintain and enhance the environment of the community, which entails advance or long-range planning (updating of the General Plan and specific elements), current planning (short-range projects), and land use controls (administering to the code and review of all subdivisions and zoning petitions). The Commission serves as an advisory board to the City Council on all matters pertaining to zoning, conditional use permit process, etc. Five members are appointed by the City Council to staggered four-year terms. Members must be qualified electors of the City.  The Commission is staffed by the Community Development Department.  For more, please see Hermosa Beach Municipal Code chapter 2.32.
