Planning Commission

​The Washington Grove Planning Commission (PC) meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 pm.  The PC reviews all applications for permits to construct, install or alter:

  • building exteriors, including porches;
  • driveways and other residential aprons;
  • walkways;
  • swimming pools;
  • fences;
  • decks; and
  • construction dumpsters, porta-potties or moving pods.

Note that the following structures do not require a building permit: 

  • trellises seven feet or less in height;
  • clotheslines;
  • patios; and
  • pergolas under 10 feet in height.

A project that is only inside to an existing building will need permits from the Montgomery County Department of Permitting Services, but not a Town permit.

The PC also manages the development of the Town’s Comprehensive Plans.  View the members of the Planning Commission, 2009 to the present (PDF).
