The Planning Department serves as staff liaison to the Mayor and Commissioners, Elkton Planning Commission, and the Historic & Architectural Review Committee. We implement the goals and objectives of the Comprehensive Plan through the administration of the Zoning Ordinance, Subdivision Regulations, Chesapeake Bay Critical Area Program, Floodplain Regulations, Forest Conservation Ordinance and other land use laws.
The Planning Department is responsible for administering and recommending amendments to Elkton's elected officials on land use regulations, and coordinating reviews of site plans, subdivisions, annexations, rezoning, special exceptions, and other land-planning issues for compliance with various applicable laws.
The Planning Department is also responsible for grant research, application and administration of state and federal grants such as the Community Development Block Grant, Critical Area Grant, Community Legacy, Sidewalk Retrofit, Maryland Historical Trust and Program Open Space Grants.
