Urban renewal panel to consider Realtor's sign

The Glen Burnie Urban Renewal Advisory Committee will consider a request from O'Conor Piper & Flynn to put a sign on the side of the company's building that faces Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard when it meets at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow.

The building already has an identifying sign on the Ritchie Highway side.

Pat Barland, Anne Arundel community revitalization manager, said the advisory committee must approve the design of all signs in the urban renewal district.

The members, meeting on the fourth floor of the Arundel Center North, also will get an update of the work of a county committee that is developing guidelines for what the community would like to see built on the county-owned 5.6-acre Superblock.

That committee will be getting advice on technical language from the Baltimore chapter of the American Institute of Architects to make sure the request for proposal that the county will issue conveys the community's sentiments, Ms. Barland said.

The group is not expected to finish its work until early March.

12-year-old abducted, robbed of bicycle

A 12-year-old Glen Burnie boy was kidnapped and robbed of his tennis shoes and bicycle by a man who forced him into his car in the 7800 block of Americana Circle Sunday, county police said.

The boy was taking trash to a trash bin at 3:45 p.m. when a man in a burgundy Chevrolet Corsica grabbed him and put him and his bicycle in the car.

The man drove to Marley Elementary School where he let the boy go, but kept his shoes and bicycle.

The boy walked home and called police.
