The Committee of the Whole is an informal special meeting of the full Planning Commission to have further discussions on specific referral items. The Planning Commission bylaws state that rezoning requests that are deemed inconsistent with the Comprehensive Plan and future land use map are automatically referred to the Committee of the Whole. Additionally, requests for Planned Development or Campus District are also automatically referred to this Committee.
The committee typically meets on the fourth Thursday of the month at 4 p.m. Currently, the meetings are held virtually by electronic means. The meetings are held at the Raleigh Municipal Building (RMB), located at 222 West Hargett Street in room 305.
