Requirements Top Next Week’s District One Delegation Meeting

November 27th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

The Workgroup on Accounting for Growth (AFG) in Maryland submitted its final report to the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) this past August and its likely to be taken up by the general assembly during the upcoming session.  The report makes recommendations regarding Maryland’s forthcoming AFG Policy, that will create water pollution offset requirements on new growth in Maryland. It’s a policy that has the Allegany County Commissioners concerned and its an issue that will top the agenda when the local officials meet with the district one delegation next week. County Administrator David Eberly said while it may help in the area of keeping the Bay clean, it will have a negative effect on new home development.
