The Charlottesville Planning Commission is a seven-member advisory board that advises Charlottesville City Council on matters and issues related to land use and urban planning in the city.
The role of the planning commission is to apply the content of the Comprehensive Plan to physical growth and development within city limits. The commission oversees any rezonings, special-use permits, site plans, and other development items that come before the city. The planning commission also serves as the Entrance Corridor Review Board (ERB).
The commission holds a regular meeting on the second Tuesday of each month, and and one work session each month.

2008 workload changes
In 2008, the Planning Commission's workload was changed as part of a process to streamline the city's development review process. The intent behind the change is to spend less time on specific site plan approvals and leave more time to focus on general zoning issues.
