Planning board 'resisted' member's efforts to investigate zoning violations

Planning board members "resisted" a fellow member's attempts to investigate illegal practices of a local developer.

Meredith K. Wellington, a member of the planning board, says of the hundreds of alleged zoning violations by the Bethesda Crest developers, "I think the confusion was created by the staff and the applicant, glossing over the details," according to the Washington Times.

"This suggests an effort to confuse and mislead."

According to the Times, "Other board members resisted her efforts to investigate other charges of building code violations in Bethesda Crest."
