Learn About Your County’s Critical Areas at #MACoCon

Lands adjacent to the Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic Ocean, or one of their tributaries are classified as “critical areas” and are subject to unique land use and development restrictions. Learn about the State’s oversight body, the Critical Area Commission, and how critical areas affect county land use at the 2019 January MACo Winter Conference.

Mission Critical: Understanding the Critical Area Commission

Description

Does your county have lands that abut the Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic Ocean, or one of their tributaries? If so, you have Critical Areas that are subject to special development and preservation restrictions. The Critical Area Commission for the Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays is the state agency that works with counties to implement local Critical Area programs and enforce Critical Area laws. Join presenters to learn about the duties of the Commission, county requirements under the Critical Area law, and current programs and initiatives of the Commission.
