Hancock’s Urban Renewal Plan, up for public input, takes shape

by Geoff Fox

Town officials held a workshop last Monday, August 29, to discuss the Urban Renewal Authority house bill and a possible ordinance that could help enforce the repair and clean up of Hancock’s Main Street.

Because it was a workshop, officials did not make any decisions except to set a public hearing prior to the September 13 town meeting and voting on the ordinance at the same meeting.

House Bill 543 was passed by the Maryland Assembly on March 13 . . .
