Community Commissions were formed to provide an opportunity for residents to be involved in the City government and it's processes. Currently, the City of Lemon Grove has two such bodies:
(1) Planning Commission
(2) Community Advisory Commission
The State Planning Law allows the City Council to establish a Planning Commission to hear appeals of land use matters and to recommend changes in the General Plan to the City Council. The Commission consists of five members who are residents of the City. The members are appointed by the City Council for a term of four years, and terms stagger so no more than two terms expire in any given year.
Vacancies that occur other than by expiration of the term shall be filled by appointment by the Council.
Regular Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Lemon Grove Community Center, located at 3146 School Lane, Lemon Grove. Special Meetings may be called when deemed necessary and will be noticed pursuant to the Ralph M. Brown Act Open Meeting Law.
