Zoning changes coming to Baltimore

Big changes are coming to Baltimore’s zoning code.  This may seem like a dry topic, but it affects land use.   Learn more about the various changes, like TOD (Transit Oriented Development), IMU (Industrial Mixed Use), as they will affect future developments in our area.

Transform Baltimore is the City’s webpage for the new zoning code.  To quickly get to one page summaries, click here and look for one-page topic summaries.  You will quickly notice that all of the zoning has numbers.  Lower numbers mean less dense, higher numbers allow for higher buildings and more density.  Zoning affects how a property can be used, and whether a property can be used for industrial purposes or for a home.
