The Planning and Zoning Commission is a nine-member board responsible for making recommendations to the City Council on zoning and subdivision matters. They also participate in special studies, as well as the Capital Improvements Program Advisory Committee (CIPAC) and the Airport Zoning Commission.

The nine Commissioners are appointed by City Council. The two-year terms are staggered and are limited to three terms. Commissioners are appointed each July. The Planning and Zoning Commission Work Session meets in the Council Briefing Room, 3rd Floor, and the Regular Session meets in the Council Chambers, at City Hall, 101 W. Abram Street.

On September 4, 2019, the Planning and Zoning Commission opened the public hearing on proposed amendments to the Unified Development Code that are necessary to implement House Bill 2439 (building materials) and House Bill 3167 (plat shot-clock).  The public hearing was continued to the September 18 meeting, which begins at 5:30 PM in the Council Chambers of Arlington City Hall, 101 W. Abram Street.  The City Council will conduct a public hearing on the proposed amendments on Tuesday, September 24, beginning at 6:30 PM.  All interested parties are encouraged to attend and provide input on the proposed amendments.  For more information, see the Platting page.
