In Fill Development Legislation

EBCA has been tracking the “In-fill Legislation” proposed by Councilmember Roger Berliner (District 1) and has provided information to the community via emails and articles in the newsletter.  EBCA has not taken a position on the proposed legislation because the issue was not addressed in a general membership meeting.

The Zoning Text Amendment (08-11) and Bill 15-08 are both in the Council PHED committee (Planning, Housing and Economic Development). ZTA 08-11 is scheduled to be discussed November 17.  These will likely be voted on by the full Council in December.

If you would like to learn more about the issue, visit Councilmember Berliner's website. 

Another source of information is Renewing Montgomery. 

To comment on the proposed legislation, send an email to Council President Mike Knapp (District 2) at before Monday, November 17.

UPDATE: The legislation passed on December 9, 2008 and was covered in a story in the Metro section of The Washington Post.
