Kent County Officials Unhappy About MDP Office Closing

Kent County officials are not happy with the state’s plans to close the MDP office in Centreville and move its critical area staff to other locations. Kent County officials call it ‘abandonment,’ but the state calls it a necessary realignment due to budget constraints. Some towns have hired private consultants to help guide them through the critical area process, and it means some towns may blow their budgets as a result of the issue.
