Owens vetoes change OK'd by council in zoning for Broadneck Road bus lot

April 12, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens has vetoed a County Council decision to change the zoning of a commercial bus lot on Broadneck Road.

Owens said in a statement yesterday that the council's decision to change the lot's zoning from residential to industrial for Chesapeake Charter Inc. was "inappropriate" for the property. Members of a committee of Broadneck residents and the county planning staff had recommended residential zoning.

A majority of council members voted last week to change the zoning for John Lonergan's bus lot. A number of community members said they endorsed the zoning change because Lonergan had agreed to limit the number of buses he stored at the site.
