On what does the Planning Commission base its recommendation?

Every application is unique and involves its own set of issues. However, the three major issues that are generally of greatest importance to the Commission in making its recommendation are:
- Is the proposed use consistent with the Comprehensive Plan?
- Is the proposed use compatible with surrounding development?
- What impact will the proposed use have on roads, utilities, schools, and other public facilities and services?
