Town of Easton Immigration Statement
The Town of Easton believes a more diverse community is a stronger, more vibrant community, and is committed to treating all of its residents, including those who identify as immigrants, in a fair and just manner. Through its commitment to social justice and inclusion, one of Easton’s most important objectives is to enhance relationships with all residents, including immigrants, and to make all residents, workers and visitors feel safe and secure regardless of immigration status. Toward that end, the Town of Easton supports organizations like the Chesapeake Multi-Cultural Resource Center, whose mission is to strengthen immigrant families and to use all available resources to more fully integrate our immigrant residents into our community.
Further, the Town of Easton believes that the Easton Police Department should be focused on the safety and security of all of the Town residents regardless of immigration status. It is not the function or mission of the Easton Police Department to enforce federal immigration laws. The Easton Police Department will not check the citizenship status of individuals with whom they interact or are witnesses to crimes. The Easton Police Department has operated in this manner for many years and will continue to do so.
Easton Police Officers will continue to work in good faith with its federal law enforcement partners to apprehend criminals, especially those that commit serious or violent crimes, regardless of their immigration status. The Easton Police Department remains committed to upholding the laws it is empowered to enforce and to uphold the constitutions of the United States of America and the State of Maryland while recognizing it is not an authorized agent of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE).
The Town of Easton will continue to honor all valid and enforceable duties and obligations imposed by a court order or any valid federal or applicable law. But in the absence of such a court order or law, Easton will not use its funds, resources, facilities, property, equipment, or personnel to assist in the enforcement of federal civil immigration law or to gather information regarding the citizenship or immigration status of any person. Easton recognizes that it is a part of a country born of immigrants and will continue to support efforts that assist our immigrant population in becoming fully-vested citizens of our community.

Draft Mixed Use Zoning
The Easton Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing at their regular monthly meeting of October 19, 2017, on the Draft Mixed Use Zoning (MXW) District that they have been working to create since July 2017. The meeting begins at 1:00 p.m. and this Public Hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
Copies of the Draft Regulations are available at the Town Planning Office, or can be viewed here. In addition to the creation of this new Zoning District, the Planning Commission will be considering where to apply the MXW District. A map depicting the application of the MXW, if it were to be applied to the whole of Easton Point, is available for review here. It is important to note that the Commission cannot apply this (or any) Town Zoning designation to properties not within the corporate limits of the Town of Easton, which is the case for several Easton Point properties. Furthermore, the Town Planning Commission is not proposing to apply this new zoning designation on many parcels that are already within the Town limits at this time. Currently, they are only considering the application of the new Zoning District to the nine parcels that were the subject of a July 2017 Annexation and the West Glenwood portion of the Easton Point Area.
Comments may be made at the Public Hearing and are also encouraged to be submitted in writing prior to the Public Hearing. Such comments may be submitted to the Easton Planning & Zoning Commission, c/o Lynn B. Thomas, Jr., AICP, Town Planner, 14 South Harrison Street, Easton, MD 21601. They may also be submitted via email to email@example.com.
