Appeals board elects officers

January 08, 1993

The county Board of Appeals has re-elected Evelyn Tanner as chairwoman and new member George Layman as vice-chairman for its 1993 term.

Ms. Tanner, a Democrat from Oakland Mills village in Columbia, was appointed to the zoning appeals board by the County Council in 1988 and was first elected chairwoman by fellow members last January.

Mr. Layman, a Democrat from Ellicott City, was appointed by the County Council in July.

The five volunteer appeals board members meet Tuesdays and Thursdays to hear testimony and make decisions on special exceptions, variances and appeals of Planning Board and Department of Planning and Zoning decisions.


The county Zoning Board has rescheduled two nights of hearings on comprehensive rezoning of eastern Howard and added a third night for testimony on mixed-use centers.

The next hearing will begin at 8 p.m. Monday in the Banneker Room of the George Howard office building in Ellicott City. Testimony on proposed zoning regulations will continue that night.

Testimony on specific changes to the county zoning map has been rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9 and 10. Those hearings will deal with all map changes except those involving mixed-use centers, which will be considered at another hearing at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 17.
