County to solicit proposals for development of Superblock

About two dozen developers and market specialists will be invited by the county to offer ideas for building on Glen Burnie's Superblock, the remaining 5.6 acres of land on Ritchie Highway that has not been redeveloped.

The Glen Burnie Urban Renewal Advisory Committee voted Thursday to send letters next week to developers selected because they had expressed interest, or had done other work in the county, or had built something that impressed committee members.

County planners will boil down about 20 suggestions for the Superblock made last month at a community forum to a handful of broad concepts to be pitched to the developers.

The committee hopes to see the responses at its Nov. 19 meeting.

Victor Sulin, commercial urban revitalization coordinator, said the proposals would give the county an idea of the types of development that would be financially feasible and the nature of concessions developers would seek from the county.

Health center closes; WIC moves temporarily

In the meantime, the Health Center will be holding the Women, Infant and Children (WIC) food supplement program and health service clinics at the Department of Utilities Building, at 7409 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd.

The last WIC services at the A Street location will take place today and will resume at the Baltimore-Annapolis location Oct. 20.

All other services will begin at the temporary location Oct. 27.
