Baltimore County Councilman Todd Crandell, Council Members & Planning Department:
The residents of Fort Howard, Maryland oppose approval of Baltimore County 2020 Comprehensive Mapping Process (CZMP) Log of Issues-District 7 Issue Number 7-015 where petitioner Himmelrich Associates Inc. requests the existing 96.69 acreage DR 1 zoning, located at the Intersection of Gettysburg and Blank Avenue (known as the Fort Howard Veterans Administration Property) be changed to DR 5.5; and furthermore, in light of this Issue Number 7-015 public opposition, that the County Council raise a zoning request to the Baltimore County Planning Department on or before Friday November 29, 2019 opposing that CZMP Issue Number 7-015 zoning petition.
Kindly note time is of the essence in this matter as technically the closing date for County Council requests is Friday November 29, 2019, the day after Thanksgiving Holiday, leaving this Monday the 25th, Tuesday the 26th, and Wednesday the 27th time to submit your request.
Thank you in advance for your representation in this CZMP Issue Number 7-015 matter.
