Local Government Implementation of Chesapeake Bay Protectionby Robert W. Marriott, Jr., Maryland Chapter American Planning, Assoc, Towson, MD, USA,
Abstract: The 1984 session of the Maryland General Assembly concluded with the passage of a legislative package on the Chesapeake Bay. One of the cornerstones of the package is the Critical Areas Legislation that charges local development approval authorities with the responsibility for minimizing adverse effects on Bay waters, vegetation, and animal populations. This paper describes the additional development review requirements that were established administratively by Baltimore County to facilitate the County's review for impact on the Bay. The paper also describes the site plan improvements which have been negotiated.
