Planning & Zoning Commission
The Land Use Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland delegates planning and zoning regulatory powers to several counties and municipalities. Among several of the delegated powers is the authority to create a planning commission to prepare comprehensive plans, zoning ordinances, and subdivision regulations and to guide development within this framework.
The seven-member Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission was formed on August 10, 1959. Members serve without pay, and receive a $90 per diem allowance. All are citizens of Carroll County.
