NottinghamMD.com received a copy of a letter sent by Councilman David Marks opposing the regulatory change in 2013.
The final rule was adopted by the Obama administration, and Councilman Marks said he never received a response.
“I have been very critical of this overreach by the federal government,” Marks commented. “There is a renewed push by the federal government for affordable housing in apartment and townhouse developments. We have a lot of dense development in the Perry Hall area, which is why I am trying to limit future growth through our rezoning efforts.”
