The Poolesville Commissioners are saddened by the news of the latest mass shooting this week in Georgia. We offer our condolences to the families of victims and the communities affected by this senseless violence. This tragedy is only the most recent incident in a disturbing trend of hate directed towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities across the nation. Poolesville celebrates diversity, stands strongly with the AAPI community and condemns all acts of hate, violence, and discrimination against anyone in our community. We will continue to ensure that Poolesville is a place where everyone is welcome.

If Montgomery County Covid-19 restrictions change in the future and allow for greater numbers of people to congregate, we may be able to plan accordingly, but at this time, we are encouraging families to make other plans for summer of 2021.

The applicant will be utilizing the Village Overlay Zone. This is a process the Town Commission created in 2015 for the village center of the Town. The Village Overlay Zone requires higher standards within the development, yet some flexibility in the zoning that achieves the desired results of the Town’s adopted Master Plan.

Below is a link to the to the Poolesville Village Overlay Zone.
https://poolesvillemd.gov/doing-business/developing-here/town-village-overlay/

What is an Overlay Zone?
Overlay Districts are in many ways like any zoning district – they provide development regulations within a specified boundary. These districts are special zones that lie on top of existing zoning districts to modify the underlying district requirements. An overlay zone may or may not match the boundaries of an underlying zoning district.

Overlay zones typically provide a higher level of regulation (more restrictive) than the existing zoning classification, but they can also permit exceptions or be less restrictive.
Overlay districts are used to accomplish a variety of goals. They are usually prompted by recommendations or policies in a community’s master plan or a special study. Examples of goals related to overlay regulations include architectural standards, signs, historic preservation, building height, and land use.
