Planning Officials Claim They Need Not Act When They Learn of False and Misleading Plans

On January 12, 2007, a meeting was held between officials from the local planning agency, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (the "Commission"), County Councilmember Marc Elrich, the County Inspector General, numerous other government officials and private citizens.

During the meeting the Commission's officials, Including Rose Krasnow and her attorney, were presented with evidence that their agency had processed plans that: a) contained materially false information, and b) required submission by a license engineer or surveyor, yet were prepared by a layperson with allegedly no formal training and who had never held any license.

Councilmember Elrich's letter documents Ms. Krasnow's statement that, "MNCPPC is not required to take any action with regard to individuals or entities that submit false or misleading documents." Ms. Krasnow continued by stating that she welcomed the County to pass legislation requiring them [MNCPPC] to do so. Ms. Krasnow has since been promoted to the position of Acting Director of the agency.

Councilmember Elrich wrote a letter to the County Executive's executive assistant about the meeting. Click here to view a copy of the letter and Councilmember Elrich's account of Ms. Krasnow's statement in paragraph number 4.
