Planning Commission

planningcommission_imageThe Yankton City Planning Commission reviews information and makes recommendations to the City Commission regarding land use, zoning and subdivision issues. The specific purpose of the Planning Commission related to these issues is set forth in South Dakota Codified Law and the Yankton City Code of Ordinances.

The Yankton City Planning Commission is made up of nine members that serve three-year terms each. Terms are staggered so that three member’s terms expire each year. The Mayor also appoints a City Commissioner as a representative to the Planning Commission to help forward Planning Commission perspectives on to the City Commission as recommendations are considered through the planning process.

Additionally, there are two Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) members that serve when land use issues in the City’s ETJ are under review. ETJ members are appointed by the County Commission and include an alternate member to ensure that two members are available when needed. The Community Development Director serves as the primary staff contact for the Planning Commission.
