Planning Commission

Role of the Commission

The Snohomish Planning Commission was created for the purpose of considering land use, regional and comprehensive plan issues, and making recommendations to the City Council. The Planning Commission may recommend moratoria and/or interim land use controls and hold public hearings as deemed necessary by the City Council. The city’s comprehensive plan establishes the framework for Planning Commission review.
