The Planning Commission also serves as the Zoning Board of Adjustment for the City of Stroud. The commission presides over public hearings of appeal or other matter(s). They have the authority to grant variance and special exceptions, where authorized, in specific individual cases if it has been determined there are extraordinary conditions to warrant such variance and special exceptions. The commission also listens to all petitions for amending zoning district classification and, if approved, makes the recommendation to the City of Stroud for final approval.
Members are nominated by the mayor and appointed by the City Council. Term is for two years, ending June 30th.
The applicant has a $50 fee upon filing the appeal to defray the cost of publishing the notice of public hearing and any other cost associated with the hearing. The board shall give 15 days notice of the public hearing. For additional information, please contact City Hall at (918) 968-2571.
