Mayor Gavin Buckley announced Friday that the City is finalizing plans for Recovery Zones to begin next week. The plans are part of the City of Annapolis’ initiatives to restart commerce by helping restaurants and retail establishments meet state guidelines for physical distancing. The City’s Office of Economic Development and the Small Business Recovery Task Force created the recovery zones to streamline City permitting and service processes.
