Effective April 1, 2022, Prince George's County has a new Zoning Ordinance. The Zoning Ordinance streamlines the development approval process; modernizes and consolidates zones and development standards; incentivizes transit-oriented and mixed-use development; and protects stable residential neighborhoods. The new Zoning Ordinance will support a sustainable network of communities for residents to live, work, and play.

The Visual Guide to Zoning Categories (PDF) has been prepared by the Planning Department to help our customers understand the different zoning classifications in the new Zoning Ordinance.
