Planning & Zoning

To successfully fulfill the functions and duties as provided by the Land Use Article of the Maryland Annotated Code.

About the Land Use Article
In 2012, the Maryland General Assembly repealed Article 66B and Article 28 and replaced it with the Land Use Article. The State of Maryland entrusts local jurisdictions with land use planning authority to guide growth and development through the Land Use Article. The statute outlines the responsibilities, roles, and functions of the planning commission and sets the ground rules for planning and zoning powers.

Business (voting) Meetings are held at 6:30 pm the first Wednesday of every month. Workshops are held at 6:30 pm the third Wednesday of every month.
