About the Commission

The Planning Commission was established in 1929 by Charter Section 4.105 and consists of seven members appointed by the Mayor and the President of the Board of Supervisors. They hold weekly public hearings, maintain the San Francisco General Plan and approves all permits and licenses subject to the Planning Code. The Commission oversees and delegates certain approvals to the San Francisco Planning Department.

Members of the Planning Commission provide an invaluable service to the City: they advise the Mayor, Board of Supervisors and City Departments on San Francisco's long-range goals, policies and programs on a broad array of issues related to land use, transportation, and current planning.

Four of the seven Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor, three are appointed by the President of the Board of Supervisors.
