Environmental Planning

Planning works with a variety of regulations intended to protect environmental quality while also allowing for development to meet human needs for housing, employment, recreation, schools, cultural attractions, and more.

Environmental planning includes the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area, Floodplains, septic tank pump-out, wetlands, and biosolids monitoring.
