The Kensington Municipal Advisory Council's primary function is making advisory recommendations on building permit applications, applying the criteria in the Kensington Planning Ordinance. (Linked below.) The planning ordinance is an overlay ordinance, meaning it applies only to Kensington and not the rest of the County. 

Note: Scheduling a KMAC hearing, if required, is done as part of the County planning department's regular processing of building applications. The applicant (or his or her architect or contractor) does not need to schedule a KMAC hearing.
