From Friends of Harford:
Zoning Determines What Can Happen on a Property!
Notice of Public Meeting
Planning Advisory Board Meeting
August 9, 2017
220 Main Street
First Floor Conference Room
The Planning Advisory Board (PAB) has concluded the public input meetings and review of information regarding the 115 Comprehensive Zoning applications for 2017. At the upcoming August 9th meeting, the PAB will vote on their recommendations for zoning changes for each property.
The Planning Advisory Board, appointed by the County Executive, role is to provide strategic advice to Harford County Administration regarding comprehensive zoning. But, then the County Executive must submit to the County Council the comprehensive revisions and amendments to the zoning maps and regulations contained in the final report of the Director of Planning and Zoning.
This fall the County Council will be sent legislation saying, in effect, enact the changes the administration has decided for each issue. The County Council will then have 60 days to act on this: first by holding a public hearing and then by passing, failing or amending the bill.
Any Councilman may add an amendment to any issue in the bill changing the zoning as they believe would be best for the property. They may offer this amendment at any time prior to the final vote.
