Join the Riverkeeper to save Deep Cove in Churchton from development

Join the Riverkeeper to save Deep Cove in Churchton from development

Anne Arundel County has granted conditional approval for Turtle Run at Deep Cove, a project that would locate 11 homes on a 40-acre parcel along Deep Cove Creek where Critical Area rules say there should be only two.

That decision was appealed by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, South Arundel Citizens for Responsible Development and the West & Rhode Riverkeeper, who contend the project, and the definition the county used to find the project legal, run counter to the intent and letter of the Critical Area law designed to protect lands abutting the state's waterways.

The first Board of Appeals hearing date is tomorrow, Wednesday, September 7, starting at 3:30 pm.  The hearing normally goes for about two hours or so.

The second hearing date is Thursday, September 8, 2016, but this time starting at 5:30 pm.  Again the hearing will likely last for a couple of hours.

The hearings will be held at the County Council Chambers on the First Floor of the Arundel Center, 44 Calvert Street, Annapolis, Maryland.

Please attend and show your support to save Deep Cove from development.
