Hello Everyone! We met with the council last night where our bill was introduced in the workshop. It seems to have been very well received. We have been given a hard timeline for the next 3 steps.
11/5/19 - First Reading. Bill is announced to the public.
12/3/19 7pm - Second Reading/Public Hearing. This is where you can come out to show your support at the Frederick County offices if you like. If you are interested in speaking as opposed to spectating please coordinate with Matt first. Our impression after last night is that we won't have to do a lot of convincing to get the vote we need. The fewer people we have speak the quicker we can move through the proceedings for the council. We do want to highlight the support we have from the community.
12/17/19 - Third Reading/Vote. Once they vote yes we have a 60 or 90 day wait for it to go in to effect. Once it does we can pull permits and get to work. We will be able to work with zoning and planning to have everything ready to hit the ground running,
So it is looking like we will be back open to everyone in June of 2020... 🥳🥳 As always we are available for questions if you have any.
