Enforcement Actions Available on Projects Requiring Certified Site Plans

If non-compliance to the Certified Site Plan warrants enforcement action, Department of Permitting Services' (DPS) Zoning & Site Plan Enforcement (Z&SPE) Division may issue Notices of Non-Compliance (NONC) and Corrective Orders, Citation(s), Stop Work Orders or a combination thereof. Z&SPE also ensures that specific design and amenity requirements are satisfied at certain critical points during the life of a project as specified on the Certified Site Plan. If these requirements are not met, Z&SPE will withhold any further building permits from issuance until these requirements are met. Z&SPE can also withhold Use and Occupancy for commercial building permits if pertinent requirements of the Certified Site Plan are not met. Maryland National Capital Park & Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) also reserves the right to issue additional enforcement action for Z&SPE NONC items.
