Charles County, Maryland

Board of Appeals

Board of Appeals

The Board of Appeals is made up of 6 citizens, 5 members and an alternate, appointed by the County Commissioners. Members are appointed for staggered terms of 4 years. The members are citizen planners as they are chosen from all walks of life and typically do not have any formal training prior to their appointment. The County Commissioners are given the authority to appoint the Board of Appeals by the Land Use Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland. This article also defines the role & responsibility for the Board. It specifies that the Board hears appeals of the zoning and land use decisions of the County Government, requests for approval of special exceptions, and requests for approval of variances.  Meetings are advertised on the County's  web-site, facebook & in the local newspaper. Meetings are held in the Commissioners Meeting Room of the County Government Building.

Any written comments during open record, following a public hearing, should be addressed to: PGM, Attn: Clerk to the Board of Appeals, 200 Baltimore Street, La Plata, MD 20646; or you may fax the written comments to 301-301-645-0540 or email Ms. Siarah Beall BeallS@charlescountymd.gov
