Decision process is 'smokescreen'; school board and County are 'laughing at us'

A source close to county developers, planners and councilmembers tells us that it "is 100% certain Seven Locks will be torn down. Only an act of God could prevent it. MCPS and the County Council are committed to this and are strictly going through the motions about listening to public opposition. There is no chance they will change their minds – they are already talking to developers . . . about what goes on the site. All pretense of a step-by-step decision process is a smokescreen, and MCPS and the County Council are privately laughing at us for not seeing this."
