ePlans allows property owners to submit development proposals and regulatory agencies to review applications electronically. The system helps manage critical project information and provides the opportunity for agencies and individuals who review and comment on new development plans to organize their comments as one voice to applicants and the public. Users at all technical skill levels communicate throughout the review process, and all project information is visible and accessible, allowing multiple reviewers to access information simultaneously.

ePlans is a major step toward streamlining the Planning Department’s development review process and provides real benefits, including cost savings, time savings, eliminating paper, greater coordination, and greater accuracy.


Our ePlans supporting documents will guide you through submitting a complete application. We encourage your input on their usefulness. Please send us your comments.

Traffic Study Scoping Form

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.

Please use this form for all new traffic study/exemption statement scoping requests. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of the Montgomery County Planning Department’s Area Transportation Planners:
