Advisory Review Commissions

The Village of Pemberton recently adopted an Advisory Planning Commissions Bylaw that established two distinct Advisory Planning Commissions know as: the "Advisory Land Use Commission" (ALUC) and the "Advisory Design Review Commission" (ADRC). These new Advisory Planning Commissions are intended to replace the Advisory Land Use Commitee and Advisory Design Review Committee, respectively.  View the Advisory Planning Commission Bylaw.
