Planning and Zoning Commission Opening

Posted on October 10, 2019

The City of Boyd is seeking a qualified individual to serve their community by serving on the  City of Boyd’s Planning and Zoning Commission. 

The Planning and Zoning Commission is comprised of five members who act as an advisory board to the Boyd City Council in regards to land use and zoning related matters. Members are appointed by the City Council for two year terms. 

The Planning and Zoning Commission’s role in the community is to ensure high quality development that adheres to the city’s comprehensive zoning and sub-division plans, as well as meets guidelines and regulations in city ordinances and laws of the State of Texas. This includes residential and commercial properties, public facilities, open spaces, as well as overall land use within the city.

Primary Responsibilities

    • Make recommendations to City Council on matters concerning zoning and site plans, public improvements, civic improvements, street changes, the routing of public utilities, and strategic planning.
    • Make recommendations to City Council regarding updates or amendments to the city’s comprehensive zoning and sub-division plans.
    • Review and make recommendations to City Council on development of property.
    • Review and make recommendations to City Council on platting of property.
    • Consider and hold public hearings when required on development and land use issues.

Staff support to the Planning and Zoning Commission consist of the City Administrator, Director of Public Services, City Secretary, City Engineer and City Attorney. 

Meeting Times

Planning & Zoning Commission meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30PM at the Boyd Community Center.  The Planning and Zoning Commission agenda is available on the City’s Website. 

Most everyone seeking to develop a property in Boyd must first appear before the Planning & Zoning Commission, before going to City Council to receive authorization to develop or redevelop properties. As part of this process, we also welcome input from citizens, business owners, neighborhood groups and community organizations on a proposed development case. Input can be provided in writing, email or by attending the meeting to speak on the matter.
