The Development Review Committee (DRC) functions under the authority of the Director of the Department of Permits, Approvals and Inspections (PAI). The DRC is composed of representatives designated by the directors of each of those departments involved in the review and approval of development projects within the County. The DRC is chaired by PAI.


The DRC meets bi-weekly to consider development proposals and make recommendations on the process by which development plans are reviewed, approved or amended within the regulations established under Baltimore County Code Sections 32-4-105, general exemptions, and 32-4-106, limited exemptions. All requests to amend prior approved development plans are subject to application to the DRC for consideration to include whether the amendment is material or non-material.

The Director sets the DRC agenda in correlation with available department resources. Notice of the DRC meetings are posted 19 calendar days prior to the event within the Office of Development Management, PAI, County Office Building and on the online calendar
