Planning Commission (PC) - 2013

The Planning Commission is composed of five regular members appointed by the Board of Supervisors who represent the various geographical areas and the commercial, industrial, and agricultural interests of the County. The Commission reviews and acts on matters related to planning and development and advises the Board of Supervisors on various land use matters.

The Planning Commission will hold regular meetings once a month, usually on the 4th Thursday of the month, as shown on the scheduled meeting dates below. Additional meetings will be added as needed for consideration of Butte County General Plan 2030, or to process development proposals heard by the Commission.

Please check below for meeting agendas and minutes. The agenda items often contain hot links to agenda reports, environmental documents, and other materials related to the items.

Tip: You can copy the project number from the agenda (e.g. TSM08-0001) and paste the project number into the “Search For” line.
