Council is set for its third discussion of North Carroll Farms IV agreement

November 11, 1996

At its meeting tomorrow night, Hampstead Town Council will consider for the third time a proposed agreement with developer Martin K. P. Hill, which would allow him to begin construction on his North Carroll Farms IV development.

The agreement tries to resolve a dispute over storm-water management and open space, which led Hampstead officials to revoke 50 of Hill's building permits for the development last year.

Council members discussed the proposal at two meetings but postponed a vote to study the issues more thoroughly.

Mayor Christopher M. Nevin, who helped to negotiate the agreement with Hill, has said that Hampstead may face expensive legal battles with the developer unless the proposal is approved.

Council members Wayne H. Thomas and Stephen A. Holland have expressed strong opposition to the agreement, claiming it violates town zoning laws.

The council will meet at 7: 30 p.m. at Hampstead Town Hall, 1034 S. Carroll St.
