About the Kenton County Planning Commission

The Kenton County Planning Commission (KCPC) is made up of 20 citizen members appointed by the county judge/executive and mayors. Together they represent the unique needs of each jurisdiction in Kenton County and play a critical role in deciding how land is used and developed throughout the county. Each planning commissioner is appointed to staggered, four-year terms by their respective jurisdiction or by the planning commission itself. The planning commission is charged with the responsibilities assigned in Chapter 100 of the Kentucky Revised Statues (KRS). These responsibilities include the adoption of a comprehensive plan and the review of proposed zoning changes, development plans, the subdivision of land, construction of cellular towers, and provisions for public facilities.

The

Kenton County Planning Commission

(KCPC) handles hearings regarding planning and zoning issues including text and map amendments. The KCPC was established in 1968 by an agreement between the City of Covington, Kenton County, and most of the other cities in Kenton County.

The Mayor appoints representatives who are approved by the Board of Commissioners. The City has three appointments to the twenty-member board. One of its appointments can be a public official, however, a public official has not been appointed since the early 1980’s. Board members are paid $25 per meeting attended.
