The Zoning Ordinance designates the permitted uses and the requirements for development of a property. First, confirm the zoning classification 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 permitted uses per the Zoning Ordinance Principal Use Tables. The Zoning Ordinance also establishes certain minimum yard sizes (setbacks), height limitations, maximum percentage of lot coverage, off-street parking, green area, landscaping, and various other requirements.
