County planners amend list for master plan teams

July 10, 1996

The county Planning Commission has amended its list of appointees to teams revising the master plan to include more than 30 residents who participated in a growth workshop in April.

Four teams, with as many as 35 volunteers each, will attempt to find solutions to Carroll's growth problems.

The commission expanded the number of members of each team to at least 11. Other appointees include representatives from industry, agriculture and community organizations.

Teams will address adequate facilities, economic development, farmland preservation and land use. As the county reworks its 30-year-old master plan, a blueprint for growth, officials hope the teams can offer insight into problems caused by a burgeoning population.

All three county commissioners provided the Planning Commission with lists of nominees to serve on the teams, said Cindy Parr, county spokeswoman.

The commission meets to set goals and organize schedules for the teams at 7 tonight at Deerfield Senior Services, Business Parkway, Westminster.

The teams will meet twice a month starting July 17 and will make a final report to the county Department of Planning in October.
