Planning Advisory Commission

The Planning Advisory Commission (PAC) serves in an advisory capacity to the Planning Department with regard to:

  • A comprehensive plan or parts thereof for the development and redevelopment of Columbus;
  • Regulations for the subdivision of land and amendments thereto; and
  • Other such matters as may be required by ordinance.

PAC has no legislative powers but is appointed by the Columbus City Council to listen to the concerns of citizens and developers, evaluate recommendations made by the planning staff and make recommendations to Council.
