COMPREHENSIVE REZONING REQUESTS

The County’s Comprehensive Plan update provides an opportunity for property owners to have the zoning of their properties re-evaluated for a different zoning district if they so choose. Property owners seeking to have their properties rezoned following the adoption of the 2021 Comprehensive Plan must make their intentions known while the Comprehensive Plan Update is occurring. Once adopted, the Comprehensive Plan charts the direction of the community’s long-term goals, which includes identifying a pattern of the desired land uses.

After the adoption of the 2021 Comprehensive Plan, the County will embark on a process of Countywide rezoning; however, the rezoning of any parcel will be evaluated against the land use designation it received in the updated Comprehensive Plan. Zoning is a tool to implement the land-use policies of the Comprehensive Plan—zoning must be consistent with the land-use plan.

Additional information and the Comprehensive Rezoning Request Form are posted on the PlanQAC website: https://qacplan2021.com/resources#rezoning.
