Laurie Feinberg, Assistant Director, Baltimore City Department of Planning will give a presentation to AIABaltimore’s Urban Design Committee on Baltimore City’s new ‘Transform’ Zoning Code.

On December 5, 2016, the City Council passed and the Mayor signed into law a new zoning code for the City of Baltimore. This code will replace the 1971 Zoning Code. It is intended to simplify and streamline development review, and provide an easily understood set of rules, while creating a more modern code that fosters growth and development while maintaining neighborhood character.

The new zoning code will go into effect on Monday, June 5, 2017.
