It's time to update the zoning maps.
The City of Annapolis’ most recent official zoning maps are dated July 2005 and are housed in the Department of Planning and Zoning. At this time, there are several reasons to comprehensively update these maps. In broad terms, there are four main factors that require technical updates:
- New State Department of Assessment and Taxation (SDAT) Tax Map Grid: SDAT produced a new parcel mapping grid in 2009.This puts the city in a square grid system making referencing much easier, but it does cause a number of alterations to the previous format for parcels and properties.
- Changes to the mapped parcel boundaries and overall improvements in mapping accuracy: As technology develops and data collections improve, digital mapping is becoming increasingly accurate.
- General updates: In order to capture rezonings approved by City Council, recently annexed parts of the City, and other changes in the parcels, such as subdivison of property, it is time to do a general update of the zoning maps. Zoning map amendments passed by City Council since 2004 (not included in the official 2005 zoning maps) are:
--AIC Forest, LLC Property Annexation (R-19-04 Amended)
--Bowen Property Annexation (R-23-04 Revised)
--Lonergan Bus Company Property Rezoning (O-31-04)
--1244 and 1248 Tyler Ave Rezoning (O-38-04)
--The Mixed Use Height Districts (O-11-05)
--Rodgers Property Zoning (O-13-05)
--Katherine Property Zoning (O-16-05)
--The Eastport Gateway Overlay District (O-30-05)
--Annapolis Neck Zoning (O-38-05)
--Hyatt Property at Marda Ln. and Forest Dr. (O-23-06)
--1321 Forest Drive/Lowry’s Site (O-18-09)
--214 Duke of Gloucester (O-67-09)
- Correcting minor mistakes and oversights: Since the adoption of the July 2005 maps, staff in the Department of Planning and Zoning and the GIS Coordinator have found some minor mistakes made in the 2005 digitization process.
