Scope and Content

Utah law authorizes each municipality to establish a planning commission(UCA 10-9-201(1)(a), 1997), and outlines the responsibilities of that commission. The planning commission is responsible for preparing and recommending a general plan for municipal growth and development, and for recommending zoning ordinances. The commission may be responsible for administering the provisions of the zoning ordinances. It can recommend approval or denial of subdivision applications, advise the legislative body, and hear or decide any matters that the legislative body designates, including the approval or denial of conditional use permits (UCA 10-9-204, 1997). The Enoch city council passed an ordinance creating a planning commission in 1980, and the Enoch planning commission held its first meeting on October 7 of that year (Enoch, city council minutes, October 1980). The planning commission immediately began gathering information for a general plan. The Enoch planning commission deals with issuesgsy such as annexation, building permits, conditional use applications, subdivision requests, and zoning ordinances. The minutes tell the date and place of meeting, list those in attendance, and summarize the business discussed.


Chronological by date.

Research Note

From 1980 through mid-1992 Enoch planning commission minutes are reasonably clean. However, from 1992 through 1995 the numerous additional documents have been included at the end of minutes for each meeting. These include primarily requests for actions by the city council, notices of actions taken by the city council or the planning commission, and numerous applications for conditional use permits along with other materials which might have been submitted by the applicant. There are as many as 50 pages of additional material included after each set of minutes for 1992-1995. Thereafter, the minutes are once more clean of extra material.
