At the DACCA membership meeting on October 17th, Myra Gowan from Calvert Citizens United spoke about the lawsuit filed challenging the 2040 Comprehensive Plan.  Below is a brief summary by the attorney:

Summary of the litigation filed on behalf of the majority of citizens of Calvert County by G. Macy Nelson, Esquire
(this statement is submitted to clarify the need for such unprecedented litigation)

IS THERE A LAWSUIT…YES
1)     Five Calvert citizens created Calvert Citizens United in order to challenge the adoption of the 2040 CALVERT COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.  In part our opinion is it was illegally enacted, due to Commissioner Kelly McConkey not recusing himself from the process.  More importantly, there were “3 little words” inserted right before the vote by County Attorney John Norris that changed the underlying intent of a 20-YEAR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.  Our Citizen Lawsuit was filed on September 19th in Calvert County Circuit Court {Case No. C-04-CV-19-000422)
The first filing is a PETITION FOR JUDICIAL REVIEW.

IS THERE A LAWSUIT…YES
2)     On behalf of our citizens/residents, we the Petitioners will continue litigation against three members of the Board of County Commissioners that approved the Plan; Commissioner(s) Hart, McConkey and Hutchins.  (Commissioners Hance and Weems voted against).

IS THERE A LAWSUIT…YES
3)  We are suing to have the 20 YEAR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN APPROVAL NULLIFIED because Kelly McConkey should have recused himself (there are currently six complaints filed against McConkey with the Calvert County Ethics Commission).  Had he recused himself (as required) the Plan would not have passed; it would have been a 2 for /  2 against vote.  Citizen concerns, comments, ideas, and most importantly, citizen questions were ignored during the 3 1/2 year process.
We want to stop passage of “this” 20 YEAR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.  Town Centers are eliminated in favor of massive Build Out and gridlock up and down Rt. 4.

FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED AS WE CONTINUE LEGAL ACTION:
