I guess I don't understand this process.... Why should people that don't own the land in these areas and are not going to invest in making changes get to plan what the people that own the land should do with it? If we improve the land, the County will raise the confiscatory taxes they charge even higher. So what is the point? Last I checked, we still have private property rights in the US, even in the Peoples Republic of Maryland! Not sure how long that might last, however......
