Westminster, MD, Tuesday, September 1, 2020 – The Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission is continuing discussions of the By-Request comprehensive rezoning of properties starting on Wednesday, September 2nd, during a regularly scheduled work session. By-Request properties are those where the property owner is requesting a change in zoning to a commercial, industrial or employment campus district as part of the Master Plan implementation.

In order to carefully consider each property and the comments received to date, the Commission is hosting three discussion meetings in September.  The Department of Planning sent 450 letters to properties that adjoin or are in the vicinity of these requested properties with an invitation to comment. Prior to any public hearing with the Board of County Commissioners, the requested properties will be posted and a postcard with the public hearing information will be sent again to these properties. 

Below is a complete schedule of the Planning Commission meetings. To participate, please refer to the agendas when they are posted on the following webpage:
