About the Planning Commission
The Rock Hall Planning Commission, appointed by the Mayor and Council, acts as a citizen board for all planning matters. Members are appointed for 5 year terms and may be reappointed when a term expires. As set forth in Article 66B(Land Use Article/October 1, 2012) of the Annotated Code of Maryland, the Planning Commission makes recommendations to the Town Council on zoning map and text amendments, and to the Board of Appeals for variances and conditional uses. The Commission may also prepare ordinances and plans for review by the Rock Hall Town Council. In its decision making capacity, the Commission approves all subdivisions and site plans.
The Planning Commission is a member of the Maryland Citizens Planners Association and members attend training sessions and subcommittee meetings with the Department of Planning, Housing and Zoning staff.
