Supporting the preservation of rural farmland in HoCo, Md


Planning Board Hearing

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 1:20 PM

Thursday, April 17th at 3430 Courthouse Drive, the Planning Board met to hear the concerns of HoCo residents while considering both ZRA 148 by DRPS and ZRA 149 by Greg Fox.  Marsh McLaughlin, Dir of Dept of Planning & Zoning, introduced her own amendment.  The Planning Board denied both 148 & 149 and made suggestions to them leaning more towards the 10% cap heavily pushed by Marsha over the more sensible and safer for neighbors of all Ag Preservation farmland in HoCo Maryland, the 2% cap suggested by Councilman Greg Fox.  Clearly, there is an agenda at play and we will continue pursing this issue all the way to Annapolis, if necessary!  Next up, the Howard County Council considers the Planning Board's recommendations likely on May 19th but we will update closer to this date if it changes.
