SILVER SPRING, MD - Officials at the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission postponed a hearing to decide sanctions against developers who built residential units too tall and too close to streets in Clarksburg Town Center. The hearing was originally slated for Thursday, July 28 and is now scheduled for September 22, 2005.
Planning Board Chairman Derick Berlage said that staff are still receiving and analyzing information from developers regarding the exact heights and setbacks of hundreds of residential buildings in Clarksburg Town Center and the precise circumstances under which the violations occurred.
“I don’t think this is the time to rush things,” said Charlie Loehr, agency director. “With clear information on all the alleged violations, the Planning Board can make a better, more informed decision.”
