About the Planning and Zoning Board

The Planning and Zoning Board of Commissioners is a recommending body, not a decision-making body. It meets to discuss requests from businesses and residents for variances, special use permits, and other accommodations to Lansing’s Municipal Code of Ordinances. After reviewing requests and meeting with the requester, the Planning and Zoning Board votes to either recommend or not recommend approval of the request. That recommendation goes to the Village Board of Trustees, and they have the authority to approve or deny the request.
