Utility and Zoning Changes Needed for New Contract School in Anne Arundel

As reported by the Baltimore Sun, a developer has offered to build a new contract school as part of  a new development in the Laurel area, but first certain utility and zoning changes need to be approved by the county.

Anne Arundel County Councilman James Benoit said Monday that he plans to ask County Executive John R. Leopold to allow the council to consider the county’s public utilities plan in an effort to move forward a developer’s plan to build a free contract school in Laurel. The school would be an incentive to allow 1,000 homes to be built, which has garnered an abundance of community support.

But county officials have said the developer must follow the same process as everyone else, including the project’s inclusion in the county’s water and sewer master plan and zoning approval through the county’s once-a-decade rezoning, which is set to happen later this year.
