Lennon to be nominated to Planning Commission

Carroll Commissioners Donald I. Dell and Elmer C. Lippy said yesterday the board will nominate Westminster attorney Robert H. Lennon for a five-year term on the county Planning Commission.

Mr. Lennon, 45, said yesterday he had not formally been asked to take the volunteer position, so could not say whether he would accept.


The attorney would replace Barbara J. Dixon of Mount Airy, who is finishing her second term, Mr. Dell said.

"She's been very dedicated," he said.


Mr. Dell said he suggested Mr. Lennon, whom he has known for 15 years.

Mr. Dell said Mr. Lennon handled a legal matter for him 15 years ago.

Mr. Lennon said he has practiced law in the city for 18 years.

The board is responsible for comprehensive, countywide land-use planning.
