Development in Montgomery County

One of the most important ways the Montgomery County Planning Board implements the vision of the County’s General Plan and Comprehensive amendments to the General Plan for the Maryland-Washington Regional District (“On Wedges and Corridors”) that provide detailed and specific land use and zoning recommendations for specific areas of the County. They also address transportation, the natural environment, urban design, historic resources, public facilities, and implementation techniques.master plans is by reviewing proposed development and deciding on subdivision requests.

The Development Applications and Regulatory Coordination Division coordinates the timely review of proposed development projects. Planners from the Area Teams review development applications for consistency with the adopted master plan as well as impact on the environment, quality of design, compatibility with neighboring uses and the availability of public facilities (water and sewer, transportation, schools). The Department may recommend that proposed projects dedicate land for roads, schools, parks, or recreation facilities. Department staff work with developers and neighbors and relevant state and county agencies to address issues of concern before sending applications to the Planning Board.
