Turtle Run at Deep Cove Development
CLA volunteer attorneys are representing two local community groups, South County Citizens for Responsible Development and the West/Rhode Riverkeeper, who want to stop Snyder Development Corporation’s plan to build a housing development along Deep Cove Creek in Deale, MD. Deep Cove Creek is one of the last, pristine tidal waterfront areas in the county. Snyder intends to increase building density on the waterfront land, contrary to the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area Act. This would set a dangerous precedent. To date, CLA volunteer attorneys have had strategically important victories. The Anne Arundel County Board of Appeals is now hearing arguments about this case into the fall.
