MCWCC Planning and Land Use Committee

The Planning and Land Use Committee (PLUC) reviews and recommends action regarding development projects and projects requiring land use permits within the MCWCC boundaries, and advocates positions on land use and building design for the betterment of the community.

The Planning and Land Use Committee normally meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m.  The location depends on the expected size of the meeting and other factors.  Some meetings may be held at various locations throughout the MCWCC community.  See the agenda for each meeting for locations and times.
