Two Hyattsville City Councilors – Bart Lawrence and Danny Schaible – along with Mayor Candace Hollingsworth, had tough words for the developers behind a proposal to build a mix of townhomes and single-family homes near Magruder Park. During Hyattsville’s Feb. 3, 2020, City Council meeting, Hollingsworth accused Norma Rivera, the attorney representing developer Werrlein Properties, of being dismissive of city concerns and requests for more information.
“There have been requests for different pieces of information. The responses we have received have been as if we are crazy for asking for the information we’ve asked for,” said Hollingsworth. “I hope the next time you are before this body, you have a different approach.”
“Okay.” Replied Rivera.
