Public hearing set tonight to address Bayhouse proposal

September 23, 1996|By Dan Thanh Dang | Dan Thanh Dang,SUN STAFF

Under the threat of a lawsuit by the county, the Annapolis city council will have a public hearing tonight on a proposal by Bayhouse Partners to develop 11.3 acres at Bay Ridge and Edgewood roads.

County Executive John G. Gary has warned Annapolis officials he will sue if they allow more homes to be built on the property annexed by the city than county zoning would have permitted.

Development on the traffic-choked Annapolis Neck Peninsula has been a sore spot between city and county officials, who pledged to work together to find a solution to the traffic problem.

The County Council passed a resolution this year urging the city to refrain from adding to the development burden in the Forest Drive corridor. Annapolis officials countered that county officials have made no effort to stop development on their side of the border and completed annexation of the land in June.

City officials say the proposed development does not increase the amount of construction in the area beyond the county's general development plan. Bayhouse wants to build 50 single-family homes with some commercial establishments. The council also will have a hearing on the newest version of the Historic District bill.
