APFO Legislative Hearing

George Howard Building - 3430 Courthouse Dr. Ellicott City

Ours and many other Associations are advising that Council Bill 61 be amended with specific provisions to more fairly and equitably balance well-planned growth and effective mitigation for our public infrastructure.

REGIONAL MEETINGS (The Interim Superintendent presents the final AAC plan to the public):

Tuesday, Sept. 12, 7:30 p.m., Wilde Lake High School

Wednesday, Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m., Howard High School

NOTE: When I called OSP, Renee Kamen said they were still deciding if they would take public testimony at these meetings. Hopefully, they will because it would be really nice for the citizens of HoCo to have a voice before the Superintendent instead of the old party line, "you got to fill out the survey."
