Center Plans Scrapped

January 27, 1991

WESTMINSTER — The Benchmark Co. of Baltimore has dropped its plans for The Pavilions shopping center at Route 31 and Fenby Farm Road.

Robert Fox, Benchmark owner, said he is tired of fighting city hall and the politics involved in trying to put in the center.

The firm's proposal for a 128,000-square-foot shopping center wasunanimously killed by the Westminster City Council last September after more than 200 citizens spoke out against it at a public hearing.

Although the council said it might consider a smaller shopping plaza, Fox said he was unable to scale down plans for The Pavilions and still have it profitable.
