Two City Council committees are set today to consider whether to endorse bills that could thwart the Calvert School's planned leveling of a neighboring North Baltimore apartment complex to make room for classrooms and playing fields.
The bills - one would change zoning law and the other would affect the city's building code - have the same thrust, requiring a primary or secondary school to seek public review before razing a building with 50 or more living units. A related bill introduced in Annapolis is to be heard Thursday.
Tonight's joint hearing is likely to be led by 1st District Councilwoman Lois Garey, chairwoman of the Land Use and Planning Committee, city officials said. The Housing, Health and Environment Committee also will be part of the 5 p.m. proceedings in the City Council Chamber. No vote is expected on the measures tonight.
