During the process to create the County’s new Zoning Ordinance, the County Council approved two sector plans; the East Riverdale-Beacon Heights (2017) and Greater Cheverly (2018) sector plans. The Countywide Sectional Map Amendment (CMA) will implement the land use recommendations of these two sector plans. Information about each of these proposed zoning changes can be found on the Proposed New Zone Comparison Map as well as this informational brochure. You can also contact the Community Planning Division at 301-952-3972.
