Regular meetings of the Planning Commission are held on the third Monday of each month (meetings are not conducted in January or September). Special meetings may be called by the Chairman as needed and agenda items are posted on the City of Camilla website. Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. and are held at City Hall in the Council Chambers located on the first floor.
