Breaking: Planning Board Last Minute Reversal - Now Recommends Approval of Sale of Peary High School Site
Today, in a classic move designed to undercut the ability of the public to track what should be a public process, the Montgomery County Planning Board staff reversed their published opinion on the sale of the Peary High School site. Planning Board staff now are recommending approval of the sale based on negotiations by County Executive Ike Leggett as shown in the document below.
Parties that were on record opposing the sale of the property were, of course, not given notice of the change of this recommendation and opportunities for public comment today on this sudden change were eliminated.
Parties previously on record as opposing this sale include the MCPS Board of Education, Superintendent Jerry Weast, and the Montgomery County Council of PTA's.
