BARNESVILLE
A CARING COMMUNITY

WELCOME

At the top of a ridge with views of Sugarloaf Mountain to the north and the Catoctin Mountain and Blue Ridge ranges to the west, Barnesville enjoys a connection with the rhythms of the natural world while being within commuting distance of the nation's capital. Barnesville is served by the MARC commuter rail system.

A CARING COMMUNITY

The town's motto, "A Caring Community," is a testament to the sense of place enjoyed by the town's residents and their neighbors in the Agricultural Reserve of Western Montgomery County.

WHAT'S NEW

BARNESVILLE'S MASTER PLAN

Every ten years, the Planning Commission updates Barnesville’s Master Plan. A Master Plan is a document that outlines a vision for the Town’s future. It begins with a description of the Town as it is. Then it lists goals for improvement in the next two decades, along with strategies for achieving that vision.


Here is a link to the new 2021 Master Plan.


Since the master plan is now adopted, there will be additional work to prepare changes to the various ordinances that Barnesville uses to regulate land use, i.e., the Zoning Ordinance, the Subdivision Ordinance, and the Forest Conservation Ordinance.

MASKS AT POST OFFICE

As we unfortunately watch the COVID numbers increase in our area as well as nationwide, let's remind ourselves that we play a part in keeping safe. The US Postal Service requires patrons to wear face coverings when in the post office and our postal employees must wear a mask (or a shield for those with a medical exemption) when facing the public. Please do your part and let us know if you have questions.
