Planning and Zoning Commission:


 This Commission’s purpose is to oversee City planning and to provide an impartial voice to elected officials and citizens regarding current and long-range City planning issues facing Casper.   The Planning and Zoning Commission is a board of seven (7) volunteer citizens of Casper that are appointed by the City Council and serve three (3) year terms.   The Commission meets, in the evening, on the third Thursday of every Month at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall to consider applications for zone changes, plats/replats, annexations, site plans for new commercial and residential developments, conditional use permits, and various long-range planning initiatives.  In addition to the monthly nighttime public hearings, Planning and Zoning Commissioners meet approximately once a month during lunchtime for training/work sessions.  The Planning and Zoning Commission is supported by a professional City staff consisting of planners, engineers, building officials, emergency services, and public utilities personnel.
