Procedural step OK'd for proposed Holly Neck project

July 08, 2005|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The Baltimore County Planning Board unanimously approved yesterday the latest procedural step in the proposed development of mansions and villas on Holly Neck peninsula on the Chesapeake Bay.

The panel voted to allow development of 95 acres on the property that sits in the critical areas zone, a 1,000-foot buffer that starts at the waterline. The board's decision now goes to the county in a process that includes county and state hearings.

The 154-acre development has been proposed by Leonard P. Berger of Ocean City. He wants to build 110 homes - a dozen $1 million mansions and 98 villas - to be placed in small clusters.

"This is just another small step in what shapes up to be a marathon process," Berger said yesterday.

The plan is opposed by the Holly Neck Conservation Association.
