City Seeks Applicants for Planning Commission – Deadline Extended!

Posted on April 9, 2021

Recognizing the vast knowledge and talent of our community, the City asks community members to step forward and serve our City on a commission or committee. These commissions and committees are charged with focusing on key issues within Sonoma and then provide feedback, recommendations and support to the City Council on those issues.

At this time, the City is seeking applications for the Planning Commission.


The Planning commission prepares, revises, and implements the comprehensive long-term General Plan for the physical development of the City and surrounding areas. It conducts hearings and makes decisions and/or recommendations on a variety of land use applications.


Applications can be submitted electronically through the City’s Civic Web Portal.

  • Applications – You can access the application by clicking on the “Commission Application” tile. To complete an application, complete the online form. Once you are done, click Submit to send your form directly to the City. Please attach a copy of your resume to your application before submitting it. Paper applications will still be accepted and are available, by appointment, in the Office of the City Clerk, City Hall, No. 1 The Plaza.
  • Interviews – No formal interviews with the City Council as a whole will be held. Individual Council Members may reach out to individual applicants to learn more when reviewing applications.
  • Terms – Individual Council appointees will serve terms that are aligned with the Council Member who appointed them, and any At-Large members and the Alternate will serve two-year terms.

Applications will be accepted until 5:00 pm Friday, April 14, 2021.

For questions, please contact the City Clerk at 707.938.3681, or by email at
