The Planning & Design Commission is responsible for the long-term planning of the City of Fairview Park and ensuring its orderly and harmonious development. The primary duty of the Commission is to review development proposals related to the plan, design, location, removal, relocation, and alteration of buildings and structures, public places, and streets in the City for the purpose of maintaining high caliber community development and protecting the real estate within the City from the impairment or destruction of value.
The Commission considers the following standards and criteria in its review of proposals: materials; colors and textures; architectural details and ornaments; mechanical equipment; approaches, drives, and parking areas; landscaping; lighting; signs; and other such standards and criteria provided for by ordinance.
At least every five years, the Commission is to review the subdivision regulations and zoning ordinances, texts, maps, and recommend to the Mayor and City Council any revisions and amendments it judges to be desirable.(Article VII, Section 2(b) of the Charter of the City of Fairview Park)
