The Planning Commission is a seven-member body appointed by the Town Council, established in 1938. Its primary role is to consider how land use decisions affect the Town. In this role, the Commission has review and approval authority for design review, use permits, variances, zoning changes and planned developments. The Commission makes recommendations to the Town Council regarding plan and ordinance updates.
The Planning Commissioners must file statements of economic interests with the San Anselmo Town Clerk pursuant to California Government Code Section 87200. Copies of these statements may be obtained by visiting the office of the Fair Political Practices Commission (428 J St., Ste, 620, Sacramento, CA 95814) or the office of the Town Clerk (525 San Anselmo Ave, San Anselmo, CA 94960). Statements of economic interests for some state and local government agency elected officers may be available in an electronic format on the Commission's Internet Web site.
