Balt. Co. developers given free rein

May 31, 2012

Thanks to The Sun for highlighting the incestuous relationship between politics and business in Baltimore County ("No 'courtesy' for Wegmans," May 27).

Impact on communities is the last consideration. In the county seat of Towson, developers are intent on building out the periphery. The core is littered with empty store fronts including the behemoth Towson Commons. A former state senator, F. Vernon Boozer, is among those who would push large commercial building into residential areas.

Owings Mills Town Center could look like Towson. Councilwoman Vicki Almond's greatest challenge is to change the culture on the council.
