 Planning Commission

Unlike the Village Council which is a body made up of elected officials for the people, the Planning Commission is body of appointed individuals of the people.  Members of the Planning Commission are intended to represent the various interests found in the community.  This balance is intended to allow members of the Planning Commission to act independently of political considerations that elected officials must account for.  The planning commission acts in a formal, advisory role, making recommendations to the Village Council. The most fundamental implementation tool is zoning. The zoning ordinance establishes regulations for the use of land and some standards for development within identified zoning district boundaries.  One of the duties of the Planning Commission is to review and recommend all zoning ordinances to the Village Council.  In addition to this, they are also charged drafting the Master Plan and also with approval of certain projects depending on whether or not a Site Plan or a Special Land Use permit is required.   The Planning Commission meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7 PM.

Zoning Board of Appeals

The Zoning Board of Appeals hears appeals, evaluates requests for interpretations and approves or denies dimensional and use variances from the zoning code. A variance is permission from the ZBA to allow a deviation from the zoning code due to a practical difficulty or unreasonable nature of applying the zoning code in a particular situation.  The ZBA in Lake Isabella does not have the authority to grant a use variance, only variances related to the structure or land.  Members of the ZBA are required to be electors in the community.
