Long-Range Planning

The Long-Range Planning Section works closely with communities, property owners, municipalities, businesses, and institutional partners to implement the Plan 2035 General Plan-Blueprint for Tomorrow, prepare comprehensive area master or sector plans, and assist in the development of functional master plans. This more traditional planning and zoning work includes the creation or refinement of master plans and comprehensive rezoning for a wide variety of locations, from large rural areas of the county to specific Purple Line Light Rail stations or WMATA Metro stations.
