Out of an abundance of caution due to novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), all City of Portsmouth Planning Department offices are currently physically closed to the public. However, our staff is still working and is here to assist you virtually. The public is encouraged to use the city’s online options for services.

The Planning Commission will resume meeting starting with the August 4, 2020 meeting. The meeting will be held virtually.

Staff is now accepting applications. The deadline for the August 4, 2020 meeting is June 19, 2020.
