What can I do on my property?

The Zoning Ordinance designates the permitted uses and the requirements for development of a property. First, confirm the zoning classification with the Planning Information Services Section (email PPD-InfoCounter@ppd.mncppc.org or call 240-302-3460 or 240-302-9464). Then, consult the permitted uses per the Zoning Ordinance Table of Uses. The Zoning Ordinance also establishes certain minimum yard sizes (setbacks), height limitations, maximum percentage of lot coverage, off-street parking, green area, landscaping, and various other requirements.

For more information, please email PPD-InfoCounter@ppd.mncppc.org or call 240-302-3460 or 240-302-9464.
