White Zoning Signs
Over the past week, you may have seen several dozen white roadside signs pop up around the 5th district, from Towson to Perry Hall. These signs advertise the upcoming hearing on the Comprehensive Zoning Map Process, which will be held on Tuesday, March 20 at 7 p.m. at Perry Hall High School. Each sign represents a particular rezoning issue. Read more about the upcoming CZMP in an article by David Marks.

Comprehensive Zoning Map Process
Every four years, the Baltimore County Council is required to review the county’s zoning maps. Zoning determines what can be built on any property in Baltimore County, as well as the density allowed for future development.
The filing period for rezoning changes starts on September 1. Once the filing period is over, the Office of Planning reviews all the proposed changes. The Planning Board holds public hearings throughout Baltimore County, then forwards its recommendations to the County Council.
