We don't need the state of Maryland telling Howard County what we can and can't do with our noise ordinances. If it is so important an issue to the state that venues not have any noise restrictions, why does this bill only apply to Howard County?
The Howard County delegation is considering a state bill to "not prohibit the electronic amplification of sound between the hours of 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. at an outdoor concert venue with a capacity of over 15,000 individuals." Not just Merriweather: any venue that might be built Howard County near you and your family.
Come to the hearing on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Banneker Room, George Howard Building, 3430 Courthouse Drive, Ellicott City.
Urge your state senators and delegates to end now this blatant attempt to override our legal protections, undermine our health and interfere with Howard County's self-governance.
