About the Growth and Infrastructure Policy


The purpose of the Growth and Infrastructure Policy (formerly Subdivision Staging Policy) is to establish a process that can give guidance on matters concerning land use development, growth management, and related issues. It includes guidelines for the Planning Board and other agencies in administering laws and regulations that affect the adequacy and timing of public facilities needed to support growth and development, and is to be adopted by the Council every four years. This is the growth policy referred to in Article 28 of the Maryland Code and in Division 50.10. – Section 10.3. and elsewhere in the County Code.
