Public hearing on Burtonsville enterprise zone plan set for March 16

Proposed boundaries of
the Enterprise Zone
A public hearing will be held on the proposal to designate parts of Burtonsville and the Briggs Chaney area as a Maryland Enterprise Zone on Thursday, March 16, 2017, at 6:30 PM at the Marilyn Praisner Library, located at 14910 Old Columbia Pike in Burtonsville.

Businesses located within the zone would receive property tax credits for improvements made to the business. They would also be eligible for an employment tax credit.

The plan is in part designed to offset the economic impact created by the relocation of US 29 in 2005, which reduced traffic to businesses along the original alignment. For more information, you can read Montgomery County's application to the State of Maryland.
