In an interview, Dennis McCartney of Dundalk called Vontran "an abysmal steward of the property," mentioning specifically the broken chain-link fence and the soil dumped on the grounds from excavations at the Yorkway site.
Vontran said he had permits to use the Sollers Point property for the soil from the Yorkway project. He said it's been difficult to maintain the property and keep trespassers out, and that's why he's eager to redevelop the land.
Olszewski, an Edgemere Democrat who has the authority to approve or deny the zoning request, said he hasn't taken a position on the North Point/Sollers Point proposal. He said he wanted to see how residents respond to the idea, and he urged Vontran months ago to test the waters.
