May turning into a green month, too?

Speaking of green, I hope everyone got a big tax return from Uncle Sam and has a nice stash of green in the bank.

No? Well then you might feel better knowing your tax dollars are already being put to work for noble causes here in Maryland. Gov. Larry Hogan (R) signed a new law, pithily coined the PRIME Act, which extends $3 billion in tax credits and exemptions to Amazon if they choose to locate their new headquarters in Montgomery County.

Sheriff Corley reported that Accident was very quiet during the month of November. He discussed the new Garrett County government ATV/Snowmobile Permit program. The permits allow riders to run up to two miles on county-maintained roadways. The money from the permits will be used for safe driving classes for new drivers, traffic signs, and other items involving safety.

Garrett planners to let consultant lead zoning discussion

OAKLAND — The Garrett County Planning Commission has decided to let a consultant lead discussions about possible countywide zoning.

The commission is planning on hiring a consultant once there is money in the budget, Deborah Carpenter, director of the department of planning, said.

“As far as the board of county commissioners go at this point, I don’t think we have any interest in doing anything on countywide zoning. Not to say if something was brought to us we wouldn’t consider any action on it,” Jim Hinebaugh, commissioner and planning commission member, said during a planning commission meeting last month.

The first step in addressing countywide zoning would be to get public input followed by research and recommendations for a plan of action from the consultant, Carpenter said.

The commission is reviewing the comprehensive plan to see what sections may need public comment, more discussion or possible changes, said Carpenter. The planning commission began the review of the 2008 comprehensive plan last year.

“I think there may be more support than there was for countywide zoning 10 years ago or 20 years ago,” said Hinebaugh, who indicated that he didn’t have a position on zoning.

At least 30 percent of county citizens are already subjected to zoning because of living in the Deep Creek Watershed or in one of the municipalities, William DeVore, zoning administrator for the Deep Creek Watershed and member of the planning commission, said.

The Garrett County Board of Realtors supports performance-style zoning in the county, Paul Durham, planning commission member, said.

The commission also decided to give Karen Myers, who was representing Deep Creek Marina LLC, approval for a special exception and variance for an aerial (zip-line-type) adventure park to be located on Deep Creek Drive in McHenry.
