The Maryland Land Acquisition in Kent County Amendment, also known as Question 12, was on the November 7, 1978 ballot in Maryland as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have granted the governing body of Chestertown, Kent County the authority to take unimproved land for immediate public purposes such as extension of municipal water, sewer and storm drain facilities. The measure also added storm drain facilities to the list of purposes for which municipalities in Cecil County may exercise similar authority.[1]
