In their rush to gather all the comments from the 2nd draft of the Comp Plan and put them on the agenda for this Wed 6/20 7pm Planning Commission(PC) meeting, staff DID NOT redact the e-mail address of citizens who provided comments. They even failed to take out the Planning Commission’s own member e-mail addresses on page 27. Oops, mistakes sure do happen when you are rushing. (link to memo comments)
What other errors are there in this draft, which the Planning Commission obviously feels pressured to send forward to the State of MD and for joint public hearing with the BOCC at the same time? (Not one after the other, so it happens more quickly.) The comments were shared with the PC admin on June 14th, which leaves all of 4 whole business days to read about 60 comments on 140 pages. The PC should not decide anything on June 20th just so the BOCC can check a box on their to-do list.
See what happens next week on Wednesday June 20th at 7pm at the Harriet Brown Community Center at 901 Dares Beach Rd in Prince Frederick. Please share this info with neighbors and friends. If you can’t attend, ask someone to report back to you. Thank you.
You can still send in comments on the 2nd draft to email@example.com and they will be provided to the PC at their July meeting.
