Places of worship are generally places of assembly and follow the commercial permit process per the building code. Places of worship are permitted in all zones throughout Montgomery County. The building design and site development will need to adhere to building code and land development regulations. The DPS program offers a free design consultation meeting to help the applicant understand development requirements for a specific location. Ideally, this consultation should take place before a location as part of due diligence and site feasibility determination. Informed decisions save considerable time and money. DPS offers case management services for places of worship with assigned staff to help the applicant successfully develop its property.

It is highly recommended for applicant(s) to schedule a consultation before purchasing, leasing and/or developing plans for a property.
