Comprehensive Zoning Map Process (CZMP) Hearing

CZMP Hearing, 6th District
Date: Thursday, March 26
Time: 6 p.m. (public sign-in begins at 5 p.m.)
Place: Parkville High School, 2600 Putty Hill Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21234

The 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 might cover many adjoining properties and might even cover many hundreds of acres. The zoning on all properties that were not issues is reenacted without change.

Please Note: Each speaker will have two minutes to present their views to the Planning Board for the CZMP issues in the 2nd District. If preparing written testimony, please bring 20 copies for the Planning Board members and staff.

The Planning Board will deliberate their recommendations during work sessions in the month of April. The sessions are open to the public, however no public input will be heard during work sessions.

For more information, please visit the CZMP page. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Planning, 105 West Chesapeake Avenue, Suite 101, Towson, Maryland 21204. Call 410-887-3480 or email czmp2020@baltimorecountymd.gov.
