Comprehensive Plan Amendments

Comprehensive Plan Amendment Applications are reviewed annually. To be considered for review, all applications must be received by the Planning Office no later than the close of business on the first Friday of the year. The following applications are exempt from this due date requirement:
  • Applications within the Potomac Communities (areas east of I-95);
  • Applications for "targeted industries;"
  • Applications within an existing or for a new Center of Commerce or Center of Community;
  • Applications for commercial or mixed use development with a commitment to a concurrent rezoning;
  • Re-designation of public land to private use or ownership.
