Upcoming Public Hearings on Zoning Changes

The Montgomery County Council will hold a second public hearing on proposed changes to the County’s Zoning Law starting at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 12, and continuing on the evening of Nov. 14. Those interested in testifying at the public hearing can sign up now by calling call 240.777.7803. Spaces are limited. The deadline to sign up is 5 p.m. on Nov 1.

public hearingThe hearings will address proposed changes to the law recommended by the County’s Planning Board and by the Council’s Planning, Housing and Economic Development (PHED) Committee. This hearing will give residents a further opportunity to comment on Zoning Text Amendment (ZTA) 13-04 and District Map Amendment (DMA) G-956.

Few changes are proposed for single-family residential properties, but non-residential zoned properties and their neighbors could be affected. ZTA 13-04 would implement the text changes to the Zoning Law, and DMA G-956 would update the zoning for each property to apply a new zone. The proposed rezoning in DMA G-956 is designed to mirror each property’s current zoning as much as possible.


 
Residents can see the proposed Zoning Rewrite, along with the tentative changes being considered by the PHED committee, at www.zoningmontgomery.org. Residents also will find an interactive map that enables users to determine the existing and proposed zoning for every property in the County. Clicking on a particular property will display the development standards (density, height limits and setbacks) for the existing and proposed zone.

Written testimony or comments about the proposed zoning changes can be sent to all Councilmembers by email at county.council@montgomerycountymd.gov
