Charles County Planning Commission Public Hearing September 24th 7:00 pm
The State and County governments are taking our property rights and land value!
Please come out and voice your opposition to the county’s staff
recommended septic tier map that will drastically downzone potentially
200,000 acres of the County by not allowing any more major subdivisions
within those 200,000 acres.
Show that the citizens of Charles County will not stand for loss of land value, jobs, and quality of life.
Please consider speaking out at the hearing and or being there to
support this effort. Invite your friends, neighbors, and employees, to
fight and preserve the property owner’s rights we currently have.
is about property rights. Most of the property that the state and
county want to put into the tier 4 which mean no development are farms.
The farmers who own the land are not getting anything for this
downzoning of their property. This means their property values go down
and they have nothing to leave their family.
state wants all the development to go in our case to Waldorf or La
Plata. They don't care that we are a rural county and that most of us
moved here to be in a rural setting. We do not want Charles county to be
a Montgomery county. CNN voted Waldorf as one of the top 20 places to
live. The current 2006 plan maintains 50% of the county stay green and
it has. Pushing all the development to Waldorf makes no sense no matter
what smart growth people say. We have a great smart growth community its
called St. Charles. I see nothing wrong with a nice mix of city and
country living with 1 acre lots outside the city and 3 to 5 acre lots
closer to the farms. I would like everyone's comments on what
Charles County should look like in 20 years. Keep it growing the way it has
with a mix or big city living. Let us know!
