Do you wonder why school construction lags behind the number of new students moving to Howard County? There is a bill before the Howard County Council right now, CB42, that needs your support to fix that.
CB42 increases the fees developers have to pay when building new homes, from $1.35/sq ft to $6.80/sq ft. The additional money raised by this fee will go towards new school construction in Howard County, increasing school capacity, and reducing the need for redistricting.
DO THIS RIGHT NOW (emails due by 10/7, the earlier the better): Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that says “I support CB42 as written.” And sign your name. That’s it. You don’t even have to include your address.
