The public will have an opportunity later this month to comment on a proposal to designate Glenmont as an enterprise zone.
Businesses in an enterprise zone may be eligible for certain tax credits based on job creation and property investment, and Montgomery County officials say that this could spur revitalization in Glenmont.
The county will hold a public hearing on March 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Glenmont Local Park Activity Building, 3201 Randolph Rd., Wheaton.
Comments will be used to develop a recommendation to County Executive Ike Leggett and the Montgomery County Council prior to submitting an application to the state government to create the enterprise zone.
Montgomery County already has three enterprise zones: Wheaton, Long Branch/Takoma Park and Olde Town in Gaithersburg.
Draft applications will be made available for review beginning March 13 online. To sign-up to testify at the public hearing, call Trina Green at 240-777-2004 or email email@example.com. Hearing impaired or Spanish interpretation services can be requested up to 72 hours before the meeting.
