The West Chester Zoning Commission is a five-member board (with one alternate) composed of volunteer West Chester residents appointed by the Board of Trustees. 

The Commission hears and decides a variety of land use cases. The bulk of the Cmmission’s work includes the following: applications to rezone property, development plans for Planned Unit Developments, development plans for Olde West Chester and zoning resolution amendments

In its review of Planned Unit Developments and Olde West Chester development plans, the Zoning Commission carries significant influence over the site design, as well as the appearance of buildings, landscaping, and amenities. On rezoning requests and text amendments, the Commission submits a recommendation to the Board of Trustees. In all cases, the Commission accepts public comment, reviews all submitted evidence, and after careful deliberation enters a formal decision or recommendation.

More detailed information on the West Chester Zoning Commission may be found in Article 7 of the West Chester Zoning Resolution [PDF].
