The Annapolis City Council passed an ordinance implementing in a much more robust and detailed manner the requirements of the Maryland Forest Conservation Act. The law applies to development on one acre or more of land. If a proposed development has partial approval, only the elements still up for final approval would be considered under the new ordinance provisions. Supporters say the measure will lead to overall better protection for the city's forests, extending protection to smaller areas of contiguous forest, requiring meetings with public participation and clarifying that the final Forest Conservation Plan is appealable - thus allowing residents to challenge administrative, Planning Commission or Board of Appeals decisions.
