Comprehensive Plan Amendment Applications are normally reviewed annually after receiving applications no later than the first Friday of the calendar year.
Please note this change of process for 2021: The Planning Office will be updating the Land Use chapter of the Comprehensive Plan and therefore will not be accepting any Comprehensive Plan Amendment applications associated with residential-only land uses during the review of all long-range land use designations countywide.
There will be several opportunities for the public to provide feedback, comments, and/or recommendations as part of the community input process as the update to the Land Use chapter progresses. Opportunities for the community input process will be posted as they are scheduled on the Planning Office website as well as being announced using the PWC Alerts notification system.

The Planning Office will still be accepting out-of-turn CPA applications which include the following:
  • Applications within the Potomac Communities (areas east of I-95);
  • Applications for designated targeted industries;
  • Applications within an existing, or creating 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.

Applications are then forwarded to the Board of County Supervisors for initiation. If initiated the amendment will be heard by the Planning Commission then forwarded, with the Commission's recommendation, to the Board of County Supervisors for final action.
