Public Invited to Provide Input on Hughesville Village Draft Zoning

The Department of Planning and Growth Management is developing new zoning regulations for the Village of Hughesville. The public is invited to provide comments and input on the draft zoning text and map, posted at www.CharlesCountyMD.gov/pgm/planning/hughesville-village-revitalization-plan-and-implementation.  The county is offering this additional opportunity for public input in advance of the required public hearings before the Planning Commission and Board of Commissioners.

The new zoning is a key component in implementing the 2007 Hughesville Village Revitalization Plan, which calls for promoting infill development and revitalization while preserving and enhancing the village character. The project area contains land currently in the Village Residential (RV), Village Commercial (CV), and Light Industrial (IG) zoning districts.

Please send comments by January 13, 2017. Citizens with special needs may contact the Maryland Relay Service at 711, or Relay Service TDD: 800-735-2258.
