The Planning Commission is the City board whose primary focus is on the future of Wamego, with respect to development of land, regulation of land uses, provision of public facilities and services, etc. As an advisory board, the Planning Commission conducts public hearings and makes recommendations to the Wamego Governing Body on planning related matters, such as approval of subdivisions, rezoning applications and master plans for City infrastructure. It is also charged with the responsibility for maintaining the Comprehensive Plan. The Commission meets at 7:00 PM the third Monday of each month in the City Commission room at the Wamego City Office.
The City of Wamego has authority to apply its zoning and subdivision regulations outside the City limits, within the “extraterritorial zoning jurisdiction”. Thus, by State law, two members of the Planning Commission must reside outside Wamego, within three miles of the City limits. The remaining five members must be residents of the City. All members serve three year terms.
