Queen Anne's County Commissioners
re : Critical Area Growth Allocation Hearing for Four Seasons held February 27, 2001
Dear Commissioners O'Donnell, Davis and McQueeney :
Thank you for extending the date for submitting comments and testimony. Also, thank you for taking the time on several different occasions to meet with and listen to the concerns of the Kent Island Defense League.
I would briefly like to
summarize the testimony I presented at the hearing for your review.
1) This plan does not
comply with the Chester and Stevensville Community Plans
The Planning Commission was given great discretion regarding the implementation of the CMPD and SMPD zoning ordinances. They were also assigned a significant responsibility on Page 4-15 of the Chester Plan : "The County Planning Commission should have subjective control over the uses, density and design of projects in the Chester Master Planned Development Area. Their primary concern should be to negotiate with the developer on behalf of the community...". The Planning Commission has not fulfilled its responsibility to the community.
2) The amount of Growth
Allocation requested is excessive
We should not use this large portion of our lifetime growth allocation for this one project.
3) We should not leave
this Legacy to future generations
We respectfully request that you deny growth allocation for this project as proposed.
Thank you for your consideration,
Richard Moser, President
