The Albemarle County Planning Commission is a seven-member body that provides guidance to the Board of Supervisors on issues of planning and development. Six of its members serve four-year terms and are appointed by each member of the Board of Supervisors. A seventh is elected at-large and serves a two-year term. One member is selected among the commissioners to serve as chair.

Meetings

Meetings are held on Tuesday nights beginning at 6:00 PM in Lane Auditorium at the Albemarle County Office Building. Members of the public may make a comment in the form of three-minute speeches at the start of every meeting. It is up to the Chair whether to take public comment during work sessions, though most generally do.
