Carroll County… It’s Time to Rezone

Carroll County is in the process of updating its zoning code…

Residential Districts

Starting in the spring of 2018, Planning worked with a citizen focus group to review planning concepts and master plans; taking feedback from this group to develop draft revisions of the residential zoning districts.  The county concept team will expand its public engagement by hosting monthly meetings open to the public.  The Department of Planning encourages more and continuous public engagement into the zoning ordinance review process.  

For a limited time, Residential By Request applications will be accepted. Another round will occur after the Residential text is complete. For more information please call the Department of Planning at 410-386-5145.
