Sierra Club is working in partnership with the Mattawoman Watershed Society and MD Bass Federation to protect this valuable Chesapeake Bay resource.

Sierra Club is working in partnership with the Mattawoman Watershed Society and MD Bass Federation to protect this valuable Chesapeake Bay resource. Charles County is presently the fastest growing county in MD.

 

In addition to the CCC-ex and the Waldorf Bypass, it seems that we will have to address the need to change the Development District of Charles County, which is 1/3 larger than the District of Columbia. With the addition of new information about the health threats to the Chesapeake Bay and the increasing awareness of the reality of climate change, business as usual can not continue.

 

We need to find a way to better organize the citizens of Charles County who are Sierra Club members and outreach to additional members for their help. We are expecting a wetland destruction hearing for the CCC-ex early this spring, and we need lots of concerned citizens to stand up and testify that we need a properly scoped EIS before permitting decisions are made.


Anyone reading this with ideas on ways to help or suggestions, please email bonnie.bick@maryland.sierraclub.org.
