Private Development

Site Plan Review Projects

Site plans are significant private and public-private projects limited to specific parcels. These plans are regulated by Administrative Regulation 4.1 policy. Those that request special exceptions to the County’s land use and zoning policies are carefully reviewed through a process that ensures proper analysis, public engagement and compliance with applicable policies and ordinances.

Active Site Plans

Active site plans have submitted formal applications for approval and are in various stages of the review process. Learn more
