Developer fined over changes to town center

By Washington Post editors

The Montgomery County Planning Board, frustrated that Clarksburg Town Center developer Newland Communities had made more than 400 unauthorized changes to plans for the community’s unbuilt downtown, fined the company $22,000 Thursday.

The fines could signal that the final chapter surrounding Clarksburg Town Center is being written. Some major disputes remain unresolved, however:

The area around Clarksburg faces renewed environmental scrutiny from state and county regulators; the county government has not resolved a dispute over who should pay for roads and a new library; and Newland has sued community activists who more than five years ago unearthed construction irregularities in the northern Montgomery development, saying they are thwarting the development.
