City Manager
Ex Officio Member (non-voting)


The Planning Commission consists of the City Manager as ex officio member without voting power and five electors appointed by Council to serve without compensation for terms of five years. Council, by a majority vote of its members, shall choose a successor to fill any vacancy.

The Planning Commission shall act as the platting commission of the Municipality and, as such, it shall have control of planning and shall provide regulations covering the platting of all lands within the Municipality.

It shall adopt and recommend to the Council a comprehensive general plan for the physical development of the Municipality, which shall include the location of public ways, property, bridges, utilities, buildings, parks, playgrounds, and recreation areas. The comprehensive general plan shall show all existing school locations in the Municipality and shall show the projected locations of new schools as determined by the Board of Education. It shall prepare and recommend to Council ordinances creating areas, zones, and districts of permitted and excluded uses, including rules, regulations, restrictions, and limitations governing the design, height, floor area, size of structures, area and size of lots, yards, courts, open spaces, use and occupancy of public and private buildings, structures, and land for trade, industry, off-street parking, residences, parks, playgrounds, and other uses or purposes as will promote the general welfare of the Municipality and its inhabitants, and any other duties and powers prescribed by the statutes of the State of Ohio.

Before the Planning Commission shall recommend to Council the zoning or re-zoning of any lands, it shall hold a public hearing on the question. The Planning Commission shall cause to be published in a newspaper of general circulation within the corporate limits of the Municipality, a notice of the public hearing. Such notice shall be published at least ten days prior to the public hearing and shall contain a summary of the question and the time and place of the public hearing.

It shall make a base map to be titled the "Official Map of the Municipality of Clyde". It shall have control over the platting and subdivision of lands and the improvement or development thereof. It shall recommend a building code.

In the performance of its function, the Planning Commission may enter upon any land and make examinations and surveys, and place and maintain necessary monuments and marks thereon.

Appeals from Planning Commission to Council

Any persons, firm or corporation, or any officer, department, board, or agency of the Municipality, or any interested elector of the Municipality who has been aggrieved or affected by any decision of the Planning Commission may appeal from such decision to the Council of the Municipality by filing a petition with the Clerk of Council within fifteen days from the date of the decision and setting forth the facts of the case. However, this section does not refer nor is it applicable to zoning matters.

Council shall hold a public hearing on such appeal not later than thirty days after such appeal has been filed with its Clerk. Council by an affirmative vote of a majority of its members shall decide the matter and their decision shall be final.
