Zoning Changes – County council hearing Monday 6/16 @ 7:30

Posted by Ed C on Saturday, June 14, 2008

Well, its the third Monday of the month and that means it time for the Howard county council’s public hearing.  The big issues this month deal with zoning changes and development in the county.

  • CB 50-2008 and CR 62-2008 deal with transferring development rights from infill parcels to other zoning areas.  The bill will permit increases in density (by 10%)  in certain areas to Columbia’s New Town zoned land.
  • The new Housing Unit Allocation chart (CR 64-2008) specifies the permitted housing allocations for the counties 9 planning regions from 2011 – 2020.
  • The Board of Education’s Open/Closed chart (CR 65-2008) which projects school capacity through 2021.
