Night hearings sought on plan for Fulton farm development

August 20, 1999

The president of the Howard County chapter of the League of Women Voters has asked Mary C. Lorsung, chairwoman of the Howard County Zoning Board, to reschedule all daytime hearings on Stewart G. Greenebaum's plan to develop his 507-acre farm in Fulton into a mixed-use community.

Carole M. Conors and members of the Fulton community have complained to zoning board members that daytime hearings prevent many residents from attending. Many of the residents are opposed to Greenebaum's plans.

"In an era of increasing cynicism and distrust of institutions, daytime hearings set an unfortunate precedent," Conors wrote in a letter to Lorsung this week. "We urge you to rethink this schedule and return to night hearings which accommodate the average citizen." Lorsung has said that daytime and night hearings, beginning Sept. 1, are needed. Two evening hearings on Greenebaum's project have been delayed twice.
