Citizens Working to Fix Howard County
| FixHoCo.com | FixHowardCounty@gmail.com |
                                                                                                                                                       
Court of Special Appeals Rules That FIXHOCO Zoning Referendum Shall Not Appear on the Ballot.

Maryland’s Court of Special Appeals, MD’s second highest court, issued an opinion on August 13, by the Honorable Peter B. Krauser, the Honorable James A. Kenney III, and the Honorable Alexander Wright, Jr.  They upheld the Howard County Board of Election’s decision to not place FixHoCo’s zoning referendum on the ballot in November.  The referendum will allow the voters to decide whether to overturn parts of the County Council’s 2013 Comprehensive Zoning bill (CB-32-2013) that thousands of citizens believe allowed overly dense and damaging development.

FixHoCo deeply appreciates the work of their pro bono attorneys, Susan Gray and Allen Dyer, non-partisan candidate for the Board of Education.  We also thank the countless volunteers, politicians, candidates and other supporters of our cause, to give the voters a voice on zoning matters.  We have filed a petition for certiorari to the MD Court of Appeals.  We hope they overturn the lower courts’ decisions, as we believe the law is on our side.

The Court of Special Appeals stated that the Howard County Board of Elections did not have to give a timely decision on the petition language being a fair and accurate summary.  They also ruled the Board of Elections does not even need to give a reason for its findings.  This was an unreported opinion, which is no surprise, given what we believe are its legally unsound findings.

“We are disappointed the Court of Special Appeals has ruled to thwart the rights of citizens to petition a law without obstruction from developers and County officials, for ours and future referenda.  They have given the local Board of Elections inappropriate leeway to ambush referenda.  Those were the court’s own words.  They stated that the Board of Election’s policies can ambush referenda, then did nothing to stop it. ” said Lisa Markovitz, FixHoCo Chair.

Alan Schneider, FixHoCo Vice-Chair and Democratic candidate for County Council District 5, stated, “The Court is sending a clear message to Howard County voters.  You aren’t really allowed to petition your government.  Responsible growth that takes into account the impact on existing communities and limits the cost to taxpayers, is now solely in the hands of elected officials, who, people need to make accountable, and not just constantly side with development at any cost.” Please see FixHoCo.com for more details on the referendum history, issues and supporters.
