The Board of Garrett County Commissioners has released a draft Land Use Management Ordinance with a goal of encouraging County property owners and other stakeholders to examine and provide comments on the draft ordinance. After conducting four public work sessions, the Board decided at its meeting on May 1, 2012 to release the draft ordinance for a 45 day public comment period, which will end on June 15, 2012. All comments should be submitted directly to the Board of County Commissioners either in written paper form or by email. The Commissioners will gather all comments and post those comments, as they are received, on this website in order to allow citizens to see one another's comments. The draft ordinance may be viewed on this website or paper copies of the draft ordinance are also available in the Commissioner's Office or the Planning and Land Development Office.
