Planning Commission


The Planning Commission is a seven-member body, appointed by the City Council, that is charged with guiding the orderly and compatible development of Richfield. The Commission holds public hearings and makes recommendations to the City Council regarding long-term land use plans, zoning regulations and development applications. 


The Planning Commission holds meetings on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Richfield Municipal Center Council Chambers. The Commission also conducts a work session approximately six times per year. Work sessions are held in the Bartholomew Room at the Municipal Center unless otherwise noted (times and dates vary). Click here to access the calendar for City Council and Commissions.

We are in the process of upgrading our Cablecast system.  The upgrade will allow us to live stream our meetings on YouTube, channel 16 and our website.  In the meantime, live streaming will not be possible, given the limited capacity of our current equipment. This upgrade will take several months.
