Notice from RCHCA Pres re April 11 Court Ruling

By April 13, 2013 No Comments

Dear members,

At the April 11 court hearing Judge Rubin ruled for the defendant government
agencies and issued a declaratory judgment dismissing the Rock Creek Hills
Citizens Association’s and the individual plaintiffs’ complaints. The
complaints had alleged that the Montgomery County Planning Board, the Board
of Education, and the County Executive, as well as three state agencies,
incorrectly decided not to follow certain statutory requirements in their
plans to convert the Rock Creek Hills Local Park to non-park. Our counsel
and your community members involved in this litigation (who attended the
hearing) believe that the Court’s decision was erroneous for several
significant reasons. We are now evaluating an appeal of the merits of the
Court’s decision.

Yours truly,

John M. Robinson
