Planning Commission

Responsibilities of the Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is a seven-member body that reviews and makes recommendations to Greer City Council concerning such requests as reviewing development plans in districts such as Planned Developments (PDs) for strict guidelines that are established, and granting final approval for subdivisions and other planning, zoning, and land development matters. It also carries out a continuing planning program for the physical, social, and economic growth of the community. The commission also considers amendments to the Zoning and Land Development Regulations, such as the Cluster Ordinance, provision for banners, and updating of Land Development Regulations (which include sidewalks and traffic impact studies for certain developments).

Planning Advisory Committee

The Planning Advisory Committee is a meeting held once a month at City Hall to review residential and commercial projects starting the review process with the City. 

City Staff and other local agencies meet the applicants for these projects to give them the basic information about the review process for the City. There is no formal review or decisions made for these projects at this meeting.

This meeting falls in line with the schedule for Planning Commission for projects that require their review.

To determine if the project is required to be reviewed by this committee, please contact the Planning and Zoning Staff.
