THE ISSUE

The Annapolis city council is weighing a number of zoning changes for the West Street corridor east of Spa Road.

City planners have recommended restricting the height and size of new buildings, limiting the distribution of liquor licenses that are effective until 2 a.m. and regulating demolition of buildings.

The proposals come as developers move forward with the $300 million Park Place development, as well as a new bank headquarters.

Although neighborhood residents say building heights need to be reduced to keep the community from being overwhelmed, some property owners and investors say this would penalize them after they stuck it out in a once-downtrodden strip.
