Contacting the Planning Commissioners

MPC is streamlining the process for contacting planning commissioners. With an ever-increasing volume of citizen comments coming in the form of email, we needed a more efficient way of managing and distributing those comments so each planning commissioner receives the same information before each meeting. Beginning on July 14, emails sent to will be automatically sent to every planning commissioner, as well as several staff members. This process simplifies things on both ends of the e-mail: planning commissioners and staff have access to all correspondence in one place and citizens don't have to find email addresses for 15 commissioners. As always, we welcome your feedback as we introduce this new process. Learn more >>
