Planning – The Planning Commission serves as the City's planning agency, reviews development projects, appeals, applications for conditional use permits, variances, and tract maps, performs architectural review for certain projects, and makes recommendations to City Council pertaining to development agreements and amendments related to the development code, general plan, specific plans, zoning map, CEQA environmental documents, and other applicable policy/regulatory matters related to the City’s planning process. Meetings are open to the public and held on the third Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Duarte Community Center. All five members are required to be Duarte residents.
