City, County form workgroup to study adequate facilities

| February 5, 2016

annapoliscitylogorCounty Executive Steve Schuh and Annapolis Mayor Mike Pantelides today announced their two jurisdictions will form a workgroup to study adequate public facilities issues. 

The goal of the workgroup is to produce a series of legislative recommendations for both the County Council and the City Council on adequate public facilities legislation, addressing issues of overcrowding at area schools.

“To grow responsibly, our two jurisdictions need to coordinate our efforts,” said County Executive Steve Schuh. “Our schools pull from both the city and county. We need to ensure consistency in policy when it comes to responsible development.”
