One of the most important ways the Montgomery County Planning Board implements the vision of the County's General Plan and master plans is by reviewing proposed development and deciding on subdivision requests. The Development Applications and Regulatory Coordination Division coordinates the timely review of proposed development projects. Planners review development applications for consistency with the adopted master plan as well as impact on the environment, quality of design, compatibility with neighboring uses and the availability of public facilities (water and sewer, transportation, schools). The Department may recommend that proposed projects dedicate land for roads, schools, parks, or recreation facilities. Department staff work with developers and neighbors and relevant state and county agencies to address issues of concern before sending applications to the Planning Board.
At its December 10, 2015 meeting, the Planning Board approved a few changes to the application fee schedule. The main changes to fees are:
See the Planning Board resolution for details of all the changes, which became effective on February 1, 2016. See the new Fee Schedule and Worksheet. If you are looking for a copy of the old fee schedule, you can get it here.
As part of the on-going effort to improve and streamline the Local Area Transportation Review and Transportation Policy Area Review (LATR & TPAR) Guidelines, M-NCPPC staff has developed a traffic study scoping form. The purpose of this form is to simplify and standardize the traffic analysis component of the Adequate Public Facilities (APF)/Local Area Transportation Review test.
For applications requiring a traffic study or exemption statement, please fill out the form and send it to the appropriate transportation planner for Area 1, 2, or 3, as noted below. The Area transportation planner will review the submitted Agreement Form and contact you to refine specific details of the traffic study scope, as needed.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of the Montgomery County Planning Department’s Area Transportation Planners:
