Site Plan Review Committee (SPRC)

The Site Plan Review Committee (SPRC) provides joint recommendations in a coordinated inter-agency review to ensure that, at a minimum, proposed development complies with the Comprehensive Plan, Baltimore City Zoning Code, Subdivision Rules and Regulations, Building Codes, Environmental codes and regulations, and other commonly accepted planning, transportation and institutional guidelines and requirements. These jointly coordinated recommendations will also help ensure safe, functional, environmentally sound, aesthetically responsive, efficient and orderly development with high standards of design. These designs will protect properties and the general public in the immediate vicinity, minimize adverse effects upon pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular traffic, create a more attractive and sustainable environment, and provide a consistent and uniform method of review.

Agencies that are typically represented on the Committee include:

  • Department of Planning
  • Department of Transportation
  • Department of Public Works
  • Parking Authority
  • Mayor’s Office of Disabilities
