Tier Map Advisory Committee Appointments by the County Executive
February 28, 2017
County Executive Alan McCarthy is pleased to announce that he has created a Tier Map Advisory Committee of 5 citizens that will work to create a Tier Map to succeed the map adopted in December 2012 which was incorporated into the County’s Comprehensive Plan in December 2016. This action is taken in response to the County Council’s request, as part of their action to incorporate the 2012 map into the Comprehensive Plan, for the appointment of a committee.
The committee will be comprised of Steve Balderston, John Bolinski, Amy Di Pietro, Carolyn Kappra, and Grove Miller. The task of the Committee will be to analyze this issue with the goal of developing a Tier Map that provides for the protection of property rights and insures the viability of the goals and objectives of the County’s Comprehensive Plan. The Department of Planning & Zoning will provide staff support to the Committee. The Committee will meet for two months from March through May and will submit their recommendations to the County Executive.
County Executive McCarthy stated: “I have appointed a knowledgeable and diverse group of individuals that I am confident will achieve my ultimate goals of protecting property rights and ensuring that our Comprehensive Plan is not rendered moot by excessive and unnecessary State legislation.”
