Critics of proposed marina to testify at hearing

Opponents of a commercial marina proposed for the mouth of Stony Creek are to testify before the county Board of Appeals at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 11.

Sterling Homes has sought permission to build a bathhouse and parking lot for a 120-slip marina that would serve residents of the Stoney Beach town house community. County planners denied a building permit this summer, saying the property lacked the proper zoning.

Orchard Beach residents also have expressed fears that a commercial marina could overload traffic on Hilltop Road.

An attorney for the developer, who argued that the county changed the property's zoning after the project had begun, concluded his case before the board last month.

If opponents need additional time, the board has tentatively scheduled additional hearings for 2 p.m. Feb. 3 and 6:30 p.m. Feb. 4. The board meets in the County Council Chambers at the Arundel Center in Annapolis.
