A story Tuesday in the Anne Arundel County edition of The Sun incorrectly identified the challenger of the legality of a parking lot used by the Waterbury Inn.

Victor Birdsong, a neighbor of the restaurant, filed the appeal with the county Board of Appeals.

The Sun regrets the error.

Lot upsets Magothy Beach residents

Magothy Beach residents are upset over a tavern parking lot that they believe violates county zoning law.

The parking lot on Magothy Beach Road across from the Waterbury Inn is recognized by the county Office of Planning and Zoning as a legal, nonconforming commercial use in a residential zone.


The Magothy Beach Improvement Association disagrees. It has asked the county Board of Appeals to enforce the property's residential zoning.

The parking lot was part of the Magothy-Chelsea Beach Democratic Club before the club closed in 1989.

Residents complained in July that the lot is now being used by customers of the inn. They argued that the lot should have closed with the political club and should revert to a residential use.

The appeals board is scheduled to hear the case at 2 p.m., Jan. 20.
