Planning Commission

The City of Winsted's planning commission is a group of citizens which has the duty of assisting and advising the city council in the administration of the city's platting, building, and zoning ordinances.

This commission is also the group of citizens that conducts public hearings on items relating to platting, building, and zoning.

There are five voting members of the planning commission who are appointed by the mayor, and subject to approval by the city council. The city administrator and one city council member also serve as an ex-officio member of the planning commission.

The City of Winsted's planning commission deals with issues such as approving plats, considering variances and conditional use permits, and also being the advisory committee to the council and how our zoning ordinance should be changed or amended.

The planning commission's main objective is to make sure that all development within the City of Winsted is in compliance with our city planning and zoning ordinances.

The planning commission meets on the second Monday of every month in the council chambers of the city office building, at 6 p.m., unless otherwise noted on the main page of this web site.

Members of the Planning Commission:
Marv Ebensperger, Chairperson
Mike Guggemos
Jolynn Cafferty
Allison Moses
Max Fasching
Michael Henrich, Council Liaison
