Balto. Co. Council backs waterfront condo plan

36-unit project sought for Bowleys Quarters

September 18, 2007|By Josh Mitchell | Josh Mitchell,sun reporter

The Baltimore County Council voted last night to support a marina owner's plan to build a 36-unit waterfront condominium in Bowleys Quarters.

The proposal by Galloway Creek Marina owner Milton Rehbein must win approval by the Planning Board and undergo a review by county agencies. But the 7-0 council vote allows the project to move forward as a "planned unit development." The designation, while subjecting the plans to public hearings, would eliminate certain zoning rules if the project is deemed to benefit the community.

Rehbein said last week that he plans to replace the 188-slip marina with condos that would sell for up to $750,000, along with a 36-slip marina.

Also last night, the council unanimously approved the payment of $510,000 to two landowners in Owings Mills for a combined 1.2 acres as part of plan to extend Dolfield Boulevard. And two councilmen introduced a bill that would require owners of pit bulls and other dogs identified by the county as vicious to muzzle their dogs in public and equip their homes with kennels. The bill is scheduled to face a council vote next month.
