Approval recommended for Oxford Landing plan

November 22, 1993

The Annapolis Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended the city approve a 162-townhouse development near Aris T. Allen Boulevard and Bywater Road despite potential crowding at Parole Elementary School.

The panel of residents appointed by the mayor to review land-use proposals ruled Thursday night that the city does not have the authority to charge the developer of Oxford Landing a fee to compensate for crowding, a practice used in the county.

The commission did recommend that the city require the developer to work with the developers of Oxford Mews and a new Safeway shopping center to widen 400 feet of Bywater Road from two lanes to five.

The Oxford Landing developer also should install a traffic light at Bywater and Yawl roads and pay a fee upfront to enlarge the city's sewage treatment plant, the panel said.
