Fall is the season of change. What better way to start the season with a preview of change to come– like a NEW 21ST Century Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations. This fall, residents and stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the third module (process and administration) of the County’s new zoning laws, as proposed by our consultant team, Clarion Associates. Over 2 years in the making, this draft document is a compilation of ideas, comments, and assessments from residents, stakeholders, elected and appointed officials on how the County should engage the community, review and decide on development proposals, and address how our communities are created through the subdivision process.
Rewriting the Zoning Ordinance is critically important to the future growth of Prince George’s County. Zoning laws help determine how land can be used such as, subdivisions of homes, where schools and hospitals are located, planning for open space to sustain communities and the environment for future generations, and much more.
Module 3 contains three important sections of the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations Rewrite.
