Forum to urge growth near transit lines


Local governments should orient new homes and businesses around transit lines instead of building more roads to accommodate suburban sprawl, according to land use experts who will speak at a forum on the topic today.

The presentation will be from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the county Board of Education headquarters in Annapolis. Sponsors include the Annapolis Neck Peninsula Federation, Generals Highway Council of Civic Associations and the Alliance for Sustainable Communities.

Speakers will include transportation and compact development consultants. Louis Pinkney, real estate director for the Maryland Mass Transit Administration, will identify mass transit rights of way that link Annapolis, Washington and Baltimore.

For more information, call (410) 741-0125.
