Final flu shot clinic scheduled for tomorrow

Council votes tax breaks on historic site restorations


TOWSON -- The County Council voted unanimously last night to give property tax breaks for restoration work or improvements to the owners of homes in 12 historic districts.

The bill brings Baltimore County in line with similar breaks offered in Baltimore City, Harford, Howard, Montgomery and Prince George's counties. It gives 10 years of grace on property tax increases on the value of the improvements or restorations, adding an incentive to help preserve landmarks.

The bill was sponsored by all seven councilmen, and was supported by County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger.

The 48-story Wyndham Hotel proposed for Inner Harbor East will be discussed at a public forum sponsored by the Baltimore Architecture Foundation from noon to 1 p.m. tomorrow at the Johns Hopkins University's Berman Center Auditorium, Charles and Saratoga streets.

On Thursday, the City Council Land Use Committee will hold a public hearing on the proposal at 6: 30 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall, 100 N. Holliday St.

Developers have asked the council to pass legislation that would waive an 18-story height limit and other restrictions on the waterfront parcel at President and Aliceanna streets.

A fire that caused at least $6,000 damage to a Fells Point bar early yesterday was ruled an arson, a Fire Department spokesman said.

The one-alarm fire was reported about 3: 25 a.m. at Max's on Broadway, a bar and tobacco shop in the 700 block of S. Broadway, said Battalion Chief Hector L. Torres, the spokesman. He said evidence was found in the building to indicate the fire was deliberately set.

Torres said the fire was declared under control in about an hour. No one was injured and the bar was closed at the time.

Police seek suspects in fatal shooting

Police were seeking the occupants of a late model red or Burgundy car in the fatal shooting Sunday night of a man in the 4600 block of Lawnpark Road in Southwest Baltimore.

Gary Clarke, 29, of the 1000 block of Stamford Road in Hunting Ridge was seated in the passenger's side of his rented 1997 Jimmy truck about 6: 45 p.m. and talking to two other people when one of them shot him at least twice in the upper body, Homicide Detective William Ritz said. The two people drove off in the car. Ritz said a bystander drove Clarke to a nearby Amoco service station in the 4600 block of Edmondson Ave. and called police.

Ritz said Clarke was pronounced dead at the scene.
