Powers & Duties

The Planning Commission holds public hearings on all applications for conditional use permits, all plans for subdivisions of land, all plans for planned unit developments, all proposals for comprehensive plans and official controls, and all proposals for amendments.

Notices of Pending Public Hearing

Minnesota State Statutes requires Winona County to send notices announcing a pending public hearing to property owners near the subject property. Typically, the hearings consist of a variance to a Zoning Ordinance provision, or a permit to operate a conditional use. Such notices invite the public to participate in the decision-making process. If you received a notice of a public hearing in the mail and you have questions, please contact the Planning Department at the number listed at the bottom of the notice.
