What are the setbacks for my property?

The Zoning Ordinance designates the size of lots and the placement of buildings on lots. First, confirm the zoning classification of your property with the Planning Information Services Section (email PPD-InfoCounter@ppd.mncppc.org or call 240-545-8976). You can also use PGAtlas.com to search your property to determine the zoning classification. Then, consult the Zoning Ordinance to determine certain minimum yard sizes (setbacks), height limitations, and various other requirements of the zoning classification.

For more information, please email PPD-InfoCounter@ppd.mncppc.org or call 240-545-8976.
