Transform Baltimore - New Zoning Code

Baltimore City is pleased to announce the launch of the new Baltimore City Zoning Code (Ordinance #16-581) that went into effect on Monday, June 5, 2017. The new "Transform Baltimore" Zoning Code, which was passed by the City Council and signed into law on December 5, 2016, will replace Baltimore's original 1971 code. It is intended to simplify and streamline development review; provide an easy to understand set of rules; and create a more modern code that fosters growth and development, while maintaining the character of Baltimore's neighborhoods.
