Development projects typically require review by the City’s Planning Commission, Community Design Review Board (CDRB), and City Council.
These groups meet on the following days each month in the council chambers at Maplewood City Hall:
- Planning Commission – 1st and 3rd Tuesdays at 7:00 pm
- CDRB – 4th Tuesdays at 6:00 pm
- City Council – 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7:00 pm
The Planning Commission would hold a public hearing and make a recommendation on most land use issues like rezoning, land use plan changes, conditional use permits, most variances, etc.
The City Council would hold a hearing and make the final decision on these items.
Construction projects that do not require any special land use-related reviews only need approval from the CDRB. The CDRB reviews architectural, site, sign and landscape plans.
