Commissioner Robinson Speaks Out About Charles County’s Comprehensive Plan

In a We Make It News exclusive interview, we discuss the update of Charles County’s Comprehensive Plan with Commissioner Ken Robinson, one of the major players at the center of the long-running debate.

The Comp. Plan is a document that outlines where and how the county will grow in the coming decades.

The plan under consideration by the Board of Commissioners was recommended by the county’s Planning Commission and has been heavily criticized. Experts say it will encourage sprawl development, an antiquated approach to managing growth that worsens the problems of crowded schools, traffic congestion and environmental degradation.

A petition asking the Board of Commissioners to fix the Comp. Plan has been set up by the Smarter Growth Alliance for Charles County. Sign it and pass it on to your friends: savecharlescounty.com
