Planning Commission

The duties of the North Little Rock Planning Commission are to conduct public hearings regarding the review of new development and the subdivision of property within the City and the City’s Planning Area, and to achieve the provisions of the Master Street Plan. The Commission aims to provide a quality community through the review of new development and the subdivision of property within the City and the City’s Planning Area.

The Commission makes recommendations to the City Council regarding zoning changes, Special Use, and Conditional Use. The Commission also makes recommendations concerning amendments or changes to the Master Street Plan, the Land Use Plan, the Subdivision and Development ordinance and other comprehensive planning elements.  The Commission exercises final approval jurisdiction for the platting of property and the development plan of all properties, with the exception of one and two family dwelling units. 

The Planning Commission public hearing is held at 4:00 pm on the second Tuesday of each month in the City Council Chambers, City Hall, 300 Main Street, North Little Rock, AR.

The Design Review Committee of the North Little Rock Planning Commission reviews design details of certain developments and provides approvals when given such authority.  The Design Review Committee along with city staff reviews all applications submitted for consideration by the Planning Commission and provides a recommendation along with any conditions, to the full Commission for final consideration. 

The Design Review Committee meets the second Wednesday after each Planning Commission hearing at 2 pm in the City Services building, 120 Main Street - 2nd Floor North Little Rock, AR.  The Design Review Committee may conduct a secondary meeting on applications at 3:00 pm also located at City Hall prior to the Planning Commission hearing.
