SILVER SPRING, MD – Montgomery County Planning Board Chairman Derick P. Berlage announced today that the Maryland State Special Prosecutor has contacted the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC). The prosecutor has initiated a preliminary investigation to determine if any criminal activity took place during the planning process of Clarksburg Town Center.
Berlage said M-NCPPC would cooperate fully with the investigation.
“We have seen absolutely no evidence whatsoever of criminal wrongdoing,” said Berlage. “But, we welcome an outsider who will take a comprehensive look and make an independent determination.”
