The DCSM/Zoning Ordinance Advisory Committee became active on July 1, 2010 and is designed to ensure the impacts of independently modifying the Design and Construction Standards Manual (DCSM) and the Zoning Ordinance are considered in a deliberate and collaborative process.
The committee is comprised of 25 members including representatives from related industry organizations, as well as citizens from each of the Prince William County magisterial districts, and an at-large representative. The Director of Planning and the Director of Development Services, or their designees, act as Co-Chairs to the Development Ordinance Review Advisory Committee with the Director of Planning, or designee, chairing the committee when discussing Zoning Ordinance Amendments, and the Director of Development Services, or designee, chairing the committee when discussing DCSM amendments.
Staff liaisons for the committee are Oscar Guzman, Land Development Division Chief, 703-792-7071, from the Department of Development Services, and Nick Evers, Zoning Administrator, 703-792-6861, from the Planning Office Zoning Administration Division.
The committee meets as needed to review proposed zoning text amendments and DCSM amendments.
