Development Review Committee (DRC)
The Development Review Committee (DRC) is an inter-agency task force comprised of representatives from public agencies and utilities such as WSSC, PEPCO, the State Highway Administration, and the county Departments of Permitting Services, Environmental Protection, and Public Works and Transportation.
DRC members discuss the application with planning staff at a regularly scheduled meeting — not more than three weeks after the application has been accepted. Each agency, providing comments for the DRC meeting, does so in writing. Planners then prepare recommendations that are presented to the Planning Board as part of the public hearing on the proposed site plan.
DRC meetings are open to the public but are not public hearings.
Upon request, staff will meet with community representatives to discuss relevant issues. To schedule a meeting concerning a plan, please contact the Information Counter at 301-495-4610.
