City Council Ordinance Proposes Moratorium on Planned Developments

Residents Encouraged to Attend Planning Commission Hearing on Thursday, July 6

On Thursday, July 6, at 7:00pm the Annapolis Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on a new City Council Ordinance (O-31-17) that proposes a moratorium on all Planned Developments until September 1, 2018. According to the staff report on the ordinance, “During the moratorium period, the City will review the definitions, policies, procedures, regulations, permissions, and outcomes related to Planned Developments in anticipation of future City Code amendments pertaining to Planned Developments.”

During this time, the City will also be working on the Forest Drive/Eastport sector study, which is expected to be completed in 2018. The study will look at traffic and other issues and will provide new and much-needed recommendations for development and zoning in this congested corridor.

We encourage all residents to attend the public hearing and support this legislation.
