Scope and Content

Utah law provides for the creation of municipal planning commissions to develop master plans for the physical development of the municipalities, create official maps, and approve all subdivisions and public construction (Laws of Utah, 1945, chapter 23). The Brigham City planning commission meets twice monthly. Planning commission meeting minutes provide the names of those present, date and time of meeting, and then present agenda of items to be discussed. The minutes summarize the planning commission's discussion. At each meeting the planning commission addresses public requests first and then addresses issues relating to general planning as time permits. While early minutes contain information about developing a master plan, the bulk of information in more recent minutes is about specific development and subdivision requests. The planning commission has considered numerous conditional use permit requests or the requests of individuals to use their residences for business or commercial purposes. Minutes for the 1990s include the city engineer's comments and meeting minutes for staff review as well as planning commission minutes. Staff review provides the approval of the building inspector and other concerned city officials before a matter is considered by the planning commission.



Research Note

Developing a master plan is a primary planning commission function, and the minutes frequently report progress on master plan research, the completion of drafts, and the presentation of final plans. The minutes do not, however, include any reports, drafts, or copies of the original master plan or any of its revisions.
