2017 Comprehensive Zoning Review
The Department of Planning and Zoning is currently reviewing the 115 Comprehensive Zoning applications that were received by the Department during the application period. The Planning Advisory Board (PAB) has concluded their public meetings and will be voting on recommendations for each application during June 2017. The Department will complete their assessments and make recommendations for each application during the summer. Tentatively scheduled for September 2017, the Comprehensive Zoning bill along with a Director’s Report will be submitted to the County Council. The County Council will have public hearings on the Comprehensive Zoning bill during the fall of 2017.
The Department of Planning and Zoning, under the administration of County Executive Barry Glassman, has developed a Harford County Rezoning Tracker for tracking rezoning requests received from property owners during the 2017 Comprehensive Zoning Review. The tracker displays an interactive map of each rezoning request submitted to the Department plus detailed information about the underlying property. Throughout this year-long review process, the rezoning tracker will be updated in real time as applications are received and processed.
To use the tracker, click on the image above and look for the underlying properties identified with red crosshatch markings on the countywide map. Clicking on a marked parcel will access multiple tabs of information, including the existing zoning, requested zoning, and assessment data. Within this feature is a link to the “document archive” which displays a copy of the rezoning application. The tracker also includes options to create, save and print maps.
As a companion to the tracker, a rezoning log has also been posted online and will be updated in real-time. The log lists affected parcels by council district and by the date the application was filed, with direct links back to the property’s location on the tracker map. As the review process unfolds, columns will be added to the log showing recommendations made for each parcel by the Planning Advisory Board, the Department of Planning & Zoning, and the final decision of the County Council. Click on the image above to access the log.
