The Planning and Zoning Board makes recommendations to the Board of Aldermen for a variety of development applications. Such applications include rezoning, preliminary plats, final plats, conditional use permits, and various other aspects of planning and zoning, including the review of site development plans. The most significant duty of the board is to adopt and update the City of Ozark's Comprehensive Master Plan.

The Board meets the fourth Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 205 N. 1st Street.
