In Carroll County, Maryland, "county commissioners moved a step closer yesterday to establishing a new zoning classification to encourage the development of high-tech business parks with well-paying jobs. After the county planning office presented details of an 'employment campus zoning district'- along with an accompanying process for speeding along review of prospective developers' proposals - the commissioners voted to set a public hearing on the proposal." The county planning director "said that when the policy is in place, the county could designate parcels for use as business parks as part of its periodic reviews of zoning throughout the county."
