Holiday Island City Planning Commission Services

Services and Responsibilities of the City Planning Commission

City Planning Commission adopts and recommends regulations to the City Council for adopting by Ordinance

     It is important to remember that the authority to plan and enforce development regulations within the planning area applies to Holiday Island when it chooses to engage in planning.  One of the first things the City Planning Commission has done was to establish a Planning Area map.  The Planning Area is the region for which the commission will prepare plans, ordinances, and regulations, that will need approval by the City Council.  Holiday Island’s territorial jurisdiction boundaries could extend up to one mile beyond the corporate limits (except where another municipal boundary is less than two miles away), but only has zoning authority inside corporate limits.


     Following the adoption of the Planning Area map, the Land Use Plan and the Road & Street Map were adopted.  The map illustrates the current roads and streets within Holiday Island and various features.  


     The next step in planning is to establish land use Zoning Regulations that the City will use to determine how new construction, both residential and commercial, fits within Holiday Island.
