The Ferdinand Plan Commission consists of nine members, three Town Council appointments, four citizen appointments by the Town Council president (no more than two of the same political party), and two County Board of Commissioners citizen appointments.  Appointments are for a term of four years, with members serving until their successor is appointed.

(2) prescribe uniform rules pertaining to investigations and hearings;
(3) keep a complete record of all the departmental proceedings;
(4) record and file all bonds and contracts and assume responsibility for the custody and preservation of all papers and documents of the commission (in the case of an advisory plan commission) or of the planning department (in the case of an area plan commission or the metropolitan development commission);
(5) prepare, publish, and distribute reports, ordinances, and other material relating to the activities authorized under this chapter;
