Gas station clears hurdle

The county Planning Board unanimously recommended a special exception for a gasoline station at the new Snowden Square shopping center on Snowden River Parkway.

Two weeks ago, the board told the Rouse Co. to do its homework and provide more information on whether the proposed Crown station was needed. That proof is required for all special exception requests for gas stations.

At issue was the lack of information about other gas stations within a 7 1/2 -mile radius -- the same area the company used to show demand for the station.

The special exception now is subject to the approval of the Board of Appeals, which will hear testimony at 8 p.m., Nov. 5 in the George Howard office building in Ellicott City.

Maryvale student named teen adviser

Joanne Fields, a resident of Macgill's Common, has been appointed to a one-year term as non-voting teen adviser to the Kings Contrivance Village Board.

Ms. Fields is a sophomore at Maryvale Preparatory School for Girls in Brooklandville. She is a member of Maryvale's "It's Academic" and "Mock Trial" teams.

Ms. Fields said she applied to be teen adviser because she is interested in government and law.
