Congratulations to the Mount Airy Planning and Zoning Commission for their proactive recommendation to the Town Council, opposing the 258-acre Harrison-Leishear annexation. The commission members obviously understand the irreversible permanent impact such massive development would impose on every resource in our community. They understand the potential impact on the schools our children attend, our water supply, roads, emergency services, and parks and recreation. They clearly understand that there is not one single perk that could be offered by the developers, nor any financial incentive to the town, that would come close to mitigating the all-around negative impact of the proposed project.

A resolution proposed by Mount Airy Mayor Frank Johnson to endorse a national climate-protection pledge died at a Town Council meeting last night. Council member John Woodhull made a motion to support Johnson's resolution, but it was not seconded by any of the three other council members present. As mayor, Johnson can introduce legislation and resolutions but does not vote. Sykesville is the only one of Carroll County's eight municipalities to endorse the U.S. Mayor's Climate Protection Agreement, which promotes energy conservation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Mount Airy's Town Council has extended its halt on residential development from six months to a year in what the council called recognition of the further need to keep growth from overwhelming public services. Though the town won't consider new subdivision plans until at least next June, the extension will have no effect on plans that have been approved. When the council approved the initial six-month halt in April, members said they would wait until the end of that period to consider an extension.
