The Division of Development Review coordinates the planning review and approval process for new development applications. Development Review staff are responsible for the timely review of applications for compliance with all of the applicable planning and zoning regulations which are collectively known as the Land Management Code (LMC). Through this important stage of the development process, the City assures that new construction is occurring in accordance with the long range visions for the community as established by the Comprehensive Plan.
Development Review staff provide technical support for the Zoning Board of Appeals as well as the City's Planning Commission.
For general information regarding zoning, development regulations, and the application process please contact the Planner on Call line at 301-600-1499.
