ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's Department of Planning is expected to release a report on how counties across the state are complying with a new law limiting growth.
Department spokesman John Coleman said the report will be given to state lawmakers on Friday. The law passed last year by the General Assembly creates a four-tiered system limiting where residential subdivisions on septic systems can be built. Counties were given until the end of December to draw growth maps detailing the tiered areas.
The environmental group, 1000 Friends of Maryland, has said not all counties are meeting the law's requirements. And the group says that is threatening rural areas.
