Planning & Zoning is comprised of six divisions:

2020 Comprehensive Plan

Annapolis Ahead.  Bridging Barriers.  Connecting Communities.  The City of Annapolis Plan, serving as the 2020 update to the City's comprehensive plan, will focus on protecting and enhancing neighborhood health, supporting economic growth and diversity, and ensuring that the local environment is resilient.

Accessory Dwelling Units

Ordinance O-39-19 has been  introduced at City Council.  The Planning Commission will be hearing the ordinance Feb. 6, 2020 at 7 pm.  They have requested information including which parcels in the City would meet the bulk regulations requirements for lot size that would allow the property owner to apply for a new accessory dwelling unit.  The map and chart show that approximately 34% of parcels in the City would be eligible.  

Critical Area Program Update

The Chesapeake Bay Critical Area Commission is updating the City's critical area maps, and the maps for all jurisdictions state-wide.  The draft maps have been posted on the "Critical Area Program Update" page.
