Issues of motivation and accountability have taken the forefront in the continuing conflict between Charles County leaders and Cliffton on the Potomac residents upset at the affordable housing development planned for the Newburg area.
“The county wants to meet with the community but they’re trying to get it done real quick. I think we need time for us to meet and figure out where we’re going,” said Mike Seman, a Cliffton resident and organizer of the July 26 meeting between residents and the county administration. “I don’t think everyone is totally against it; we want [new] homes that are built comparable to the homes on the street.”
