The St. Charles Parish Planning Commission is a seven-member public body appointed by the Parish Council. The code of ordinances states that the “planning commission shall constitute the zoning commission for the parish of St. Charles and shall exercise all the powers, duties and functions which are conferred or imposed on parish zoning commissions by the general laws of the state or by special laws applicable to St. Charles Parish.”
Thus, the commission is the advising body for establishing land use policies and is charged with holding public hearings on land use applications and making decisions and recommendations to the Parish Council on subdivision plans, rezoning requests, special permit uses, home occupations and zoning and subdivision code amendments.
Hearings before the Planning Commission are obtained by submission of an application through the Department of Planning and Zoning. The commission meets once per month – usually the first Thursday of the month unless that day falls on a holiday.
To get in touch with a Planning Commission member, call (985) 783-5060.
