 The Board of Garrett County Commissioners will conduct a Public Hearing on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. located at Garrett College – Room 205 – Continuing Education Building, 687 Mosser Road, McHenry, Maryland to review a citizen proposal to amend the Deep Creek Watershed Zoning Ordinance. 
The specific amendment proposed is:
Amend Section 157.024(A)6 to read that “Natural Gas Wellheads” are not permitted (N) in all zoning     districts.
