The Department of Planning would like to thank the Mayor and City Council for completing their review of City Council Bill #12-0152. On December 5, 2016, the City Council passed and the Mayor signed into law a new zoning code for the City of Baltimore.
This code will replace the 1971 Zoning Code. It is intended to simplify and streamline development review, provide an easy to understand set of rules, while creating a more modern code that fosters growth and development while maintaining neighborhood character.
It goes into effect June 5, 2017.
