The Planning and Zoning Commission was established by the Leadville Municipal Code to promote the development of private and public land and structures within the boundaries of the City without interfering with the property rights of the people who own the land or structures. The Planning and Zoning Commission supports the development of Leadville by establishing a set of codes that promote health, safety, convenience, order, beauty, prosperity, and general welfare of the land and structures in the City.  

The commission is made up of seven people. The people on the Commission are the Mayor and six other people who are residents of the City of Leadville. The Mayor appoints these six other people and the City Council approves the appointees. Each member is on the Commission for six years. The Planning and Zoning Commission meets twice a month, every month on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 6:00 pm in City Council Chambers at City Hall.
