Comprehensive Zoning Map Process 2020

The Comprehensive Zoning Map Process (CZMP) takes place every four years on an exact schedule specified in the County Code. Any citizen may request a zoning change on any property in Baltimore County, although the usual participants in the process are individual landowners, contract purchasers, community organizations, County staff, the Planning Board and the County Council.

The CZMP covers a period of approximately 12 months and results in zoning decisions that are reflected in a final log of issues. Ultimately, the County Council decides on each issue whether to retain the existing zoning or to enact a different zone(s) or district(s). Generally, each issue is a single property, but an issue may cover many adjoining properties and may even cover many hundreds of acres. The zoning on all properties which were not issues is reenacted without change.

CZMP 2020 starts with the public filing period that begins on September 3. Additional information about the process, including filing dates, fees and hearing schedules will be posted when available.

For more information, please visit the CZMP page.

Bridge Near Third Mine Branch Reduced to One Lane

A nine-foot-long, concrete-slab bridge (Bridge B-0757) on Stablersville Road, just west of Graystone Road, is in need of repair and was reduced to one lane of traffic by Department of Public Works structural engineers more than two years ago. The bridge is scheduled to be repaired and County engineers have begun to scope out options.

Gores Mill Road Bridges

The concrete bridges that span Little Falls just south of the Morris Meadows Recreation Farm (Bridges B-0136, B-0137, B-0138 and B-0346) were constructed more than 80 years ago and need replacement or renovation. Work began in August 2017 and three have been completed.  Bridge B-0346 should be completed by the summer. Work on the project is currently suspended in accordance with environmental permitting requirements, but is expected to resume in May when stream restrictions on construction are lifted.
