[photo, County Services Plaza, 150 Main St., Prince Frederick, Maryland] The Department of Planning and Zoning was renamed the Department of Community Planning and Building in July 2012. It resumed its original name in July 2017.

Matters relating to planning and zoning are governed by both State and County laws. The Maryland Forest Conservation Act, for example, requires all county governments to adopt local forest conservation programs (Chapter 255, Acts of 1991; Code Natural Resources Article, secs. 5-1601 through 5-1613).

The Department also is aided by the Environmental Commission, the Agricultural Preservation Advisory Board, the Agricultural Reconciliation Committee, and the Planning Commission.
