Baltimore County Planning Department launches CZMP public comment application

  • 0

BALTIMORE COUNTY —The Baltimore County Department of Planning has launched a new application on its website to accept public comments on the Comprehensive Zoning Map Process (CZMP) 2020 rezoning issues.

The application includes an interactive map with information about each issue broken down by council district.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on public gatherings, the in-person Planning Board public hearings were cancelled; however, the Planning Board will review all information and input collected and hold a live-streamed meeting on April 21, 2020 at 6 p.m.

During the meeting, which can be viewed and heard online by the public, the Planning Board chairman will summarize the comments and materials that were submitted for issues in each Council District.

Deadline for Comments

The comment period for both submitting written material and using the online application to make comments will end on April 10, 2020. Comments can be emailed to, or mailed to:

Baltimore County Department of Planning

Attn: CZMP Coordinator

Jefferson Building

105 West Chesapeake Avenue, Suite 101

Towson, Maryland 21204

Planning Board Work Sessions

Beginning April 22, 2020 the Planning Board will begin holding the CZMP 2020 Planning Board work sessions. The work sessions will also be live-streamed.

The Planning Board work sessions have always been open to the public for observation, but have never allowed public comment.

Due to restrictions for public gatherings at the current time, the public will also not be allowed to attend the work sessions.
