About Development Review


 Performs reviews of site plan and subdivision applications for County Planning Board approval.

  • Assures that development impacts on county roads and/or drainage facilities are both anticipated and mitigated.
  • Ensures that development proposals are integrated with county corridor wide capital improvement plans.
  • Evaluates development proposals with respect to master plan elements including transportation needs, redevelopment, and open space.
  • Presents draft conditional approval reports to the County Planning Board with recommendation for action.
