Transparency Should Work Both Ways With County, Developers

November 21st, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Transparency is the buzzword when it comes to the relationship between the Allegany County Commissioners and the West Side Neighborhood Association.  Several times at county meetings, citizens including Dr. Nancy Giunta have asked about the background work done before making the decision to go with D.R. Horton as the builder for the Sedgewick Avenue housing site…

WCBC has learned that the developer that did not receive the winning bid, Live Together representative Jane Rohde, has a personal relationship with members of the West Side Neighborhood Association, going so far as to stay at one of the member’s homes when in town – something that has not been made transparent to County residents or the Commissioners. WCBC has reached out to Rohde but messages have not been returned.
