General Information

The Planning Commission performs duties and exercises power and authority with regard to planning, subdivisions, zoning, zoning administration, and other land use regulatory controls as prescribed by ordinance and state law.

The Planning Commission consists of seven residents of the Town of Los Gatos, each serving a 4-year term. Applicants are asked by Council to demonstrate knowledge of the Town Code and its land use and planning policies.

The commission has several standing committees, and individual Planning Commissioners also represent the commission on a number of Council-appointed committees. Committee terms are for 1 year and are appointed by the Planning Commission Chair.


The commission meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, in the Town Council Chambers, at 7 p.m. Commission meetings are broadcast live on KCAT-15. Live and archived videos are also available online.
