End of Year Update

Sorry it has taken me so long to send this update.  November and December turned out to be very busy months!  If you would like weekly updates of activities in our area please sign up for the Cheverly Parents Resources Center's weekly events newsletter.
Cheverly Sector Plan Update(from News & Alerts)
On Thursday December 21st the Planning Board decided to make the recommendation to "deny" the inclusion of the proposed Map Amendment into the Cheverly Sector Plan. Yay!! 

The Planning Board received analysis from Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission of the public testimony, verbal and written, prior to making their decision. There were over 630 statements made regarding the Map Amendment, all but one was in opposition.  That means that approximately 10% of Cheverly's total population provided comment.  

The schedule for a final decision from the District Council remains the same: 
1) Transmission of Recommendation to District Council  (12/27) 
2) Official receipt of recommendation by  District Council (1/9)
3) Earliest Possible decision by District Council (1/23)
