March 18, 1997|By From staff reports

WHITE MARSH -- The seven-member Baltimore County Council unanimously approved last night regulations holding developers in the Honeygo area of White Marsh to the most detailed and stringent design guidelines in the county.

The strict guidelines, which address materials and designs in townhouses and stores, would require that Honeygo be built as an upscale, "neo-traditional" community with a small-town feel.

The guidelines underscore county officials' interest in retaining residents who might move to more rural counties, and their fears of creating a poorly planned, low-income community.
