Planning Commission

Planning Commission

The Planning Commission focuses on land use policy issues and makes recommendations to the City Council on such issues, based on criteria outlined in the City's Comprehensive Plan and Community Development Code.

Commission for Citizen Involvement

The City Council has designated the Lake Oswego Planning Commission as the Commission for Citizen Involvement (CCI).  Each CCI member is appointed to the CCI simultaneously with appointment to the Planning Commission and is to serve on the CCI as long as his or her term in office on the Planning Commission.

The Commission for Citizen Involvement serves to assist with the development of a program that promotes and enhances citizen involvement in land use planning; assist in the implementation of the citizen involvement program; and evaluate the process being used for citizen involvement.

The Planning Commission reserves time on every agenda to meet if needed as the CCI, and holds an annual meeting each winter or spring to review the Citizen Involvement Guidelines and program.

Meeting Information

The Planning Commission regularly meets on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall in the Council Chamber at 380 A Avenue, Lake Oswego.  Meeting date, time, and location are subject to change, please check the ‘Upcoming Events’ panel on this page for details.

Planning Commission meetings are televised on Tualatin Valley Community Television (TVCTV) Channel 23, 28, or 30. Visit for up-to-date playback times and channels.
