"Developers in Carroll County, long accustomed to some of the state's most permissive development policies, are bracing for the imposition of what some are calling the most restrictive growth-control measures in the region. The new rules -- which will apply when the county's yearlong freeze on development expires June 10 -- will require developers to meet tighter standards to prove that schools, roads, utilities and emergency services in a community are sufficient before breaking ground on residential projects."
