What is the Wheaton Plan Commission?
The Wheaton Plan Commission (WPC) serves as an advisory board to the Wheaton Town Board (WTB). The WPC reviews existing ordinances and assists with developing new ordinances for WTB approval. Residents also come before the WPC for review of changes they want to make with property, etc., to make sure the changes conform to existing ordinances. The WPC then makes a recommendation to the WTB for consideration.
The WPC consists of seven members. One of the members may be a member of the WTB and the other six must be citizen members who have experience and qualifications or who are willing to learn. The terms are for three years and are staggered. The officers of the WPC are the Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Deputy Secretary. The Town Chair appoints members with advisory approval of the board.
Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm at the Town Hall. The exception to this is the months of December through March, when the meetings are held at 6:00pm. Agendas are posted on the Town website under the Plan Commission area.
