They Came … They Spoke … But Will Charles County’s Government Listen?

WATCH the video.

15WATCH a 1-minute video of Commissioner Ken Robinson, who spoke with We Make It News at a May 30 forum on Smart Growth that featured Urban Land Institute Senior Fellow Ed McMahon and former Maryland Governor Parris Glendening.

Sponsored by the Smarter Growth Alliance for Charles County (SGACC), the event drew an audience of over 100 and was held at the College of Southern Maryland’s La Plata campus.

WATCH a 1-minute video of Rich Hall, Secretary of the Maryland Department of Planning. In the interview, Hall offers his take on Charles County’s “Balanced Growth Initiative (BGI)” tier map, a land-use document tied to the “septic bill” that does little to protect Charles County’s rural character and natural resources.

BGI, a lobbying group that represents Charles County’s development industry, is pushing hard against Smart Growth policies for the county.
