Frederick Grapples with Tricky Historic Property Issue

In a recent Kojo Nnamdi Show interview, Frederick Council Member Billy Shreve discusses the property battle between Frederick County residents and a group backed by the church of Scientology over the future use of a presidential fishing retreat.

The 40-acre retreat site called Trout Run has been purchased by the group and they hope to turn the site into a drug treatment facility. Residents and council members of Frederick County are trying to hold up the process with zoning laws citing that this property is historic. The broadcast discusses how far local government should go in interpreting how historic property is used.
