Planning Commission
Planning is the process by which public agencies, such as the City of Yreka, determine the intensity and pattern of various land uses in a community. Because the way that land is used and distributed in the community affects the general public, the environment and the economy, planning also involves environmental and socio-economic impact assessments, and the creation and enactment of laws and regulations to shape and implement the community's goals. It also involves analyzing and evaluating the design for the physical layout of the community, and a public approval process to facilitate balanced decision-making.
