2019 Comprehensive Rezoning

The City’s updated Comprehensive Plan, visionHagerstown 2035, was adopted on April 3, 2018. In order to implement the Comprehensive Plan, staff are initiating a comprehensive rezoning to create conforming uses and consistency between the future land use plan and our current zoning map.

When developing the new Comprehensive Plan for the City, visionHagerstown 2035, the Planning Commission reviewed the conforming and non-conforming status for areas with inconsistent zoning, changes that had occurred since the prior comprehensive rezoning, mistakes which had been made in delineating zoning lines, and the expressed plans of property owners. As a result of this analysis, the plan’s Future Land Use map included recommended areas for a future comprehensive rezoning.

The Planning Commission’s public review meeting on the comprehensive rezoning will be on June 26 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber of City Hall.
