The Saline County Planning and Zoning Commission was formed in 1952, which makes it the fifth oldest Planning & Zoning Commission in the state. Today the Planning & Zoning Commission consists of eight members, with at least a majority of the members residing in the unincorporated regions of Saline County. Meetings are conducted the first Monday of every month with a few special workshops throughout the year. The majority of the meetings are held in Room 107 of the City-County Government Building, 300 W. Ash, Salina. All meetings of the Planning & Zoning Commission are open to the public and the news media. Minutes of the meetings are also available for public view and use. Planning & Zoning Commissioners are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to a term of three years.

The primary duty of the Planning & Zoning Commission is to prepare plans for Saline County, which guide the development and preservation of the County. The Planning & Zoning Commission makes final judgement on applications for Conditional Use Permits, Preliminary Plats, and Subdivision Exceptions. The Planning & Zoning Commission also makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on applications for Zoning Amendments, Final Plats, Text Amendments, and amendments or addendums to the Comprehensive Plan. This Commission has the responsibility for the comprehensive and long-range development of the County while promoting public interest and well-being.
