Four years after Anne Arundel officials approved a plan to limit growth on the Annapolis Neck, the County Council is dusting it off to codify the provisions. The bill, introduced by County Executive John R. Leopold and Councilman Joshua Cohen of Eastport, would "downzone" hundreds of acres, reducing the amount of development that can take place. It would mark the first comprehensive rezoning of the peninsula in a decade. Leopold said county officials are "long overdue" in recognizing concerns raised in the "small area plan," which a committee of residents and businesspeople produced after five years of discussions.

A month after a five-alarm fire destroyed three homes on the Annapolis Neck peninsula, workers are putting the final touches on a fire station to serve that community. More than three decades in the making, the $4.5 million fire station is set to open in the spring, Anne Arundel County fire officials said. "It was community support that got this done," said fire department spokesman Lt. Shawn M. Jones. Last week, workers were sanding and hammering in rooms that will be used as sleeping quarters, a kitchen and a command center.

Over the objections of the lawmaker representing the Annapolis Neck and amid accusations of ulterior motives, the Anne Arundel County Council has approved the first extensive rezoning of the peninsula in a decade. The zoning package "downzones" 600 acres south of Forest Drive to stop further residential growth, codifying a growth plan that residents approved four years ago. But the Republican-majority council went against the local councilman, Annapolis Democrat Josh Cohen, and County Executive John R. Leopold to "upzone" three properties along Bestgate Road - a move that critics say might open the gates to a proliferation of retail and office space along the congested corridor.

One Sunday last summer, Dave Humphreys was walking to the community pier after dark to clean his sailboat when his right arm started to hurt. The pain stabbed upward into his shoulder. Then it grabbed his chest. He drove the half-mile to his home on the Annapolis Neck Peninsula, wondering how best to break the news to his wife, Gitta Humphreys. He settled on: "I'm having a heart attack." Gitta Humphreys called 911. And the ambulance arrived - about 20 minutes later. Living on the lower peninsula has meant relying on emergency vehicles from Annapolis to get through traffic on Forest Drive, then wind down Bay Ridge Road.

The idea was born in the 1970s as new homebuyers began crowding onto the Annapolis Neck peninsula, but only now, after 30 years of clamoring, are residents of the traffic-choked area set to get the fire station they've wanted. In perhaps the most enthusiastically greeted segment of her budget presentation last week, County Executive Janet S. Owens proposed spending $4.5 million to build the station. The County Council still has to approve the funding, but members have supported the station before.
