ADDENDA AND ERRATA 861
The Western Maryland Regional Development Office is an
integral part of the Department of Economic Development
and functions as a field arm of that Department in the local
coordination of plans and projects under the Appalachian
program and the provision of staff support to Maryland's Rep-
resentative on the Appalachian Regional Commission. The
staff of the office will also assess the economic and resource
potential of the three counties, consult with Western Mary-
land leaders to obtain their ideas for strengthening the area's
economy, and seek to enlist broad-based public support and
cooperation in regional development tasks. To assist in these
tasks, the establishment of a Western Maryland Development
Council, to consist of civic, local government and business
leaders, is under consideration. The initial budget for the
office in fiscal 1966 is $52,000, of which 75 per cent is being
supplied by a federal grant under the Appalachian Act, and
25 per cent by the State.
