The Planning and Zoning Commission is made up of citizens interested in participating in the planning process for the immediate needs and future growth of the City of Benson. Commissioners have many duties, from acting as long range community advisors to granting approval for commercial site plans. Commissioners assist with the preparation and review of the General Development Plan and the Zoning Regulations. The Planning and Zoning Commission also holds public hearings to allow Benson citizens and other interested parties an opportunity to voice their opinions regarding proposed projects.
The Commission holds meetings on the first Tuesday of the month at Benson City Hall at 7pm. See Boards and Commissions on the left hand navigation bar for agenda and minutes.
