Accord Panel

A fundamental goal of the Big Darby Accord is to ensure that the zoning and site development review processes are fair, consistent and apply evenly to all areas of the planning area.  

A Big Darby Accord Advisory Panel will fulfill an oversight function to the review process and create a mechanism for collaboration among the jurisdictions.  

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.
 

Composition

The Accord Panel is a multi-jurisdictional body with members appointed by the participating jurisdictions.
