Draft APFO Report Available for Comment

The Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance (APFO) Workgroup of the Maryland Sustainable Growth Commission is circulating a draft report on county and municipal APFOs for comment.  The draft  report summarizes 2-year reports that local governments have been required to submit to the Maryland Department of Planning on their use of APFOs and the effect of APFOs on slowing or stopping growth in Priority Funding Areas.  The draft report also makes several recommendations regarding possible statewide changes to APFO requirements. 

MACo is reviewing the report and if you wish to submit any comments to MACo, please email them to Les Knapp (lknapp@mdcounties.org) by the end of Tuesday, April 30.
