Area Plan Commission
The Area Plan Commission is defined by state statute. The Plan Commission consists of a seven (7) member panel, containing a mixture of both elected officials, citizen members and others who are selected by virtue of their office.
The Plan Commission holds public hearings relating to petitions for rezone, subdivision plats, development plans, and amendments to local zoning ordinances. As defined by law, in matters of rezoning and amendment petitions, the Commission acts in an advisory capacity by making a recommendation and forwarding the petition to the County Board of Commissioners or the Scottsburg City Council for final action. In matters regarding subdivision plat and development plan approval, the APC Board action is final.
The Area Plan Commission meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Commissioners' Meeting Room of the Courthouse (Room 128). These meetings are open to the public.
There are filing deadlines for petitions that must be met before a public hearing will be scheduled. Please call our office for additional information.
