This department is organized into three functional areas – planning and zoning, community development, and economic development.  The planning program involves the preparation of local plans, as needed, and the coordination of planning efforts with other agencies including the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission  (M-NCPPC), the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), and the University of Maryland.  Planning staff review and provide recommendations to the City Council on plans, projects, and development applications within the city and vicinity.  The Advisory Planning Commission (APC) is supported by the Planning Department and holds public hearings on applications for zoning appeals and departures.  The department also applies for and administers funding from local, state and federal sources to enhance the city as a place to live, work and visit.  The economic development program is focused on revitalizing the city’s commercial districts and providing assistance for business retention, expansion and recruitment.
