Downtown study due in March

A long-range study of Annapolis' historic downtown will be presented to the city Planning and Zoning Commission early next month.

After nearly three years of wrangling over the future of downtown Annapolis, a committee of business leaders and residents reached a hard-fought consensus in January on a 300-page comprehensive plan.

Even as the group approved the final document, however, members continued to voice conflicting interests that threatened to unravel the compromises worked out over many meetings.

Recently, business leaders and residents have voiced concerns about sections of the document, ranging from creating a waterfront entertainment area to a recommendation to raise the fees for residential parking by 50 percent.

After the planning commission reviews the study, it will be sent to the City Council. A public hearing will be held before the council votes on the document.
