Since 2010, Anne Arundel County has lost over 2800 acres of forest – more by far than any other county in Maryland. The Anne Arundel County Council will hold a public hearing Monday on a bill to (#68-19) that would protect what’s left of our forests, institute tougher replanting requirements on developers, increase fines for violations, and generally strengthen the existing forest conservation legislation. We are unlikely to have an opportunity like this to positively influence the County development process.
Join the environmental community in Annapolis, led by the Maryland League of Conservation Voters, Arundel Rivers Association and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, in a rally to show support for the bill. County Executive Steuart Pittman is expected to speak at the rally.
After the rally, attend the public hearing at the County Council meeting and speak your mind or just show your support for the bill. The County Council meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Sign up to testify in support of the bill.
Whether you can make it to testify in person or not, there’s an easy way to let members of the County Council know how you feel. Click here. Be sure to take this action before Monday.
