Planning Commission

The Code of Virginia requires the Planning Commission. Every locality creates a Planning Commission to promote the orderly development of its locality. The Planning Commission is also responsible for the creation of a Comprehensive Plan (attached below) for the physical development of the Town. The Town must adopt the Comprehensive Plan.  The Planning Commission reviews discusses and hears public comment on matters related to town code and ordinances related to zoning and planning. The Commission also formally recommends revisions to the Town Council to the Comprehensive Plan, Zoning Ordinances, Subdivision Ordinances, and rezoning requests.

These meetings are open to the public and are held at 5:30 PM on the first Monday of each month. The schedule is provided below.

The Onancock Planning Commission consists of one (1) Town Council representative who acts as a liaison between the Planning Commission and Town Council and six (6) members appointed by the Town Council.
