The Planning Staff provides primary professional and technical support to the Planning Commission including preparation of meeting agendas, public notices, issue papers, and information packets. At the direction of the Planning Commission, the Planning Staff prepares drafts of ordinances, zoning text amendments, street name changes, and other reports as needed. This division also maintains the demographic profile/information about the Clemson community.
In order to maintain the high quality of development expected by our residents, the City has adopted Land Development Regulations
. These regulations provide minimum standards for land subdivision and the construction of required infrastructure necessary to support new development. This includes minimum requirements for roads, water and sewer, and storm water facilities. The Planning Division Staff coordinates the required reviews with various City departments prior to submitting these plans to the Planning Commission for review/submission.
