Planning Commission

The Forest Park Planning Commission is the appointed board that oversees the master plan and ensures that development and redevelopment within Forest Park is in harmony with the plan and meets the standards of the community. The Planning Commission is established by the City Charter, Article VII.
The development of Forest Park was guided by a Master Plan prepared in 1953, before the municipality was incorporated. Forest Park has regularly revised and updated the Master Plan, first with Comprehensive Master Plan of 1964, and again in 1972, 1990 and 2007. 

The Planning Commission consists five residents appointed by the City Council, plus two members of the City Council. One of the appointed seats can be a non-resident owner or employee of a Forest Park business. The appointed members serve five-year terms and the City Council members serve for the same period as their term on Council. The names, positions and terms are listed below. All seven members of the Planning Commission have equal duties and privileges.
