Big Darby Accord Advisory Panel 

Big Darby Recommended Land Use Map
The Big Darby Accord is a multi-jurisdictional plan covering the Franklin County portion of the nationally recognized Big Darby Watershed. A fundamental goal of the Accord is to ensure that the zoning and site development review processes are fair and consistent throughout the planning area. The Panel shares responsibility with the local governing jurisdiction to review and render advisory, non-binding opinions on zoning applications and site development plans in terms of conformance with the Accord Plan. Each jurisdiction continues to be responsible for final plan approval or denial for proposals in their area. Panel membership is comprised of appointees from partner jurisdictions.

The Franklin County Department of Economic Development and Planning hosts an extensive website with plan documents, application information, schedule and other resources. Big Darby Accord Website.
