Quicker review of plans for development sought


Carroll County planners are looking for ways to shorten the development-review process to make it easier for developers to build a home, subdivision or business.

County officials hope to trim three or four weeks from the seven months it usually takes to process development applications, Philip J. Rovang, county planning and development director, told County Commissioners yesterday.

The time period is the same as for other counties in the metropolitan area, he said.

County officials hope to speed up the approval of public works agreements, which are legal agreements between developers and the county that guarantee construction of such things as utilities, roads and sidewalks.
