Planning Commission

About the Planning Commission

The Planning Commission has the principal duty of acting as an advisory body to City Council regarding both amendments to the master plan of the City and the Unified Development Code.  The Commission also serves as a final authority pertaining to subdivision plats within the City of San Antonio city limits and within the Extraterritorial Jurisdiction.

Application Process

You must complete a Planning Commission Appeal Application to have your request considered by the Planning Commission.  More information on the Planning Commission can be found in the Land Entitlements Section.  After you submit your application, Development Services will assign a case manager to guide you through the process.

Meeting Schedule

The Planning Commission holds a public meeting two times a month on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month in the Board Room located at 1901 S. Alamo. Meetings start at 2 p.m. but are subject to change.  For information on the Planning Commission agenda and for changes to meeting times/dates, please email the Planning Commission liaison. All meetings are open to the public.

Citizen Participation

We encourage citizens to attend the public hearings. If you are unable to attend, you can submit comments for the Planning Commission to consider. Public comments regarding an agenda item may be submitted in writing to the Planning Commission staff prior to the meeting, by hand-delivery, mail, or email.

Membership

The Planning Commission has nine regular members appointed by the City Council for an overlapping two-year term.

Planning Commission Technical Advisory Committee

The Planning Commission appoints 18 locally recognized community members to the Technical Advisory Committee for overlapping two-year terms. The Technical Advisory Committee advises the Planning Commission on the Major Thoroughfare Plan and Unified Development Code amendments and meets as often as necessary.
