A developer's plan for a 36-unit waterfront condominium with boat slips that has pitted neighbor against neighbor for years in Bowleys Quarters has been rejected by a Baltimore County hearing officer. In a 45-page opinion based on days of hearings, John E. Beverungen denied the Galloway Creek condominium proposed by Milton A. Rehbein III, who for decades has owned a marina at the site along Burke Road on the Bowleys Quarters peninsula. While Beverungen agreed with some of the developers' arguments, he rejected the project on grounds that it conflicts with the county master plan and neighborhood community plan, and violates a law that specifies where such projects are allowed in Bowleys Quarters.

Let's face it: Summer's over. But still, warm weather and plenty of daylight have me trying to squeeze those last few drops from the season. Read: Drink outdoors as frequently as possible. One of my favorite places to do so as of late has been at Sunset Cove in Bowleys Quarters in Baltimore County. The waterfront destination's sand, palm trees and boat slips are transformative enough to make you feel as if you're somewhere far away from life's reality. Its extensive cocktail list, filled with tiki-themed favorites and specialty crushes, make the tropical transporting even more seamless.

Ken Hoffman remembers that last heavy rains Bowleys Quarters saw — Tropical Storm Isabel in 2003 when the water came within a foot of his house. On Thursday, as the rains fell and water began to cover docks and roads in Bowleys Quarters, he said "I get nervous," saying he does not have flood insurance for his $400,000 house. By 8 p.m., the National Weather Service reported 8.47 inches — one of the highest rainfall totals for the state. When the tropical storm hit seven years ago, it caused tidal surges of as much as 8 feet in the Chesapeake Bay, flooding entire communities and causing more than 2,000 people to be evacuated from their homes.

Baltimore County officials announced plans Friday to install sidewalks along a road segment in Middle River where residents have complained about pedestrian dangers. The county has set aside $70,000 to construct an 800-foot stretch of sidewalk with handicap ramps on Bowleys Quarters Road from the intersection of Holly Grove Road to Carroll Island Road, near a local shopping center. County Council Chairwoman Cathy Bevins, who represents that community, said she's been working with County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's office for the last few years to secure the sidewalks.

After a four-year search for the perfect piece of waterfront property on which to build their dream home, Mike and Lana Condon hit the jackpot in November 2011. A little cottage, bearing the water damage of countless summer storms and winter winds, sat on 1 acre on the banks of the Middle River in the eastern Baltimore County neighborhood of Bowleys Quarters. The Condons purchased the double lot -- with old trees providing shade on the street side of the property and a sweeping plain of open lawn to the original bulkhead and pier on the river -- for $362,500.

It began as a casual search for a vacation home on the water. Sue and Tom Graham's main residence was in Jacksonville in Baltimore County. Each had a demanding job, and they grew weary of spending long hours in a car driving to and from the beach on summer weekends. They soon learned however, that waterfront property in Anne Arundel County, as well as in many areas of Baltimore County, was well out of their budgeted price range. "We looked at cabins and dumps, lots and shacks that sold for $400,000," said Sue Graham, 54, a clinical nurse specialist for medical-supply company Cook Medical.

To its opponents, the proposed condominium project on the Bowleys Quarters waterfront would be a monstrosity, a blight on the landscape the size of the playing field at M&T Bank Stadium. Its supporters, many of them of retirement age, enjoy the prospect of moving into the 36-unit building and enjoying the view of Galloway Creek - and leaving the yardwork to others. A public hearing last night on the subject, held by the Baltimore County Planning Board, was a standing-room-only affair and amply illustrated the divergent views of residents of the eastern county peninsula.

On a point overlooking Galloway Creek, Joe and Rosalie Hession savor sunsets from the top floor of their new, round, hurricane-resistant house. Up the road, William and Janice Norris are still living in a cramped, government-issued trailer. But they draw comfort knowing that they will move into a Cape Cod, complete with hardwood floors and a stone fireplace, by Christmas. And on Bay Drive, residents and sightseers ride by just to gawk at a home rising on what once was four individual lots along the Chesapeake Bay. Two years after Tropical Storm Isabel ravaged eastern Baltimore County, the rebuilding is on in earnest on the Bowleys Quarters peninsula.

Your story regarding a proposed outlet mall in White Marsh quoted Allen Robertson as a representative of a community group in Bowleys Quarters that would be affected by the development ( "Developer eyes outlet mall along I-95 in White Marsh," Jan. 24). Bowleys Quarters is located several miles from the proposed site and is at least a 15-minute drive away. I would urge your reporters and editors to take a look at a map before deciding who you solicit comments from. Had you done so you would have easily determined that Mr. Robertson and his group are no more affected by potential traffic from this project than would be the residents of Towson, Essex, Middle River or other areas within that 15-minute zone.

The Baltimore County Board of Appeals has approved a plan for a 36-unit waterfront condominium on the southeast side in Bowleys Quarters, reversing a hearing officer's ruling issued last year. The board voted 2-1 to approve the Galloway Creek planned unit development (PUD), first proposed by marina owner Milton A. Rehbein in 2006, officially filed in 2007 and tied up in appeals between the courts and county agencies ever since. It appears the dispute will continue, as the chief opponents intend to appeal this most recent decision to the Circuit Court.

Bill Lagna doesn't feel he's leading a coup. As the first president of a community group created in the wake of a divisive plan to build condominiums at a weathered marina in Bowleys Quarters, Lagna says the goal is to unify residents on the eastern Baltimore County peninsula. "The intent of the group is to try to come up with acceptable developments that will fit in with the general theme of the existing neighborhood," says Lagna, president of the new Bowleys Quarters Community Association.

Behind the asphalt parking lot at Dimitri's International Grille in Catonsville, the wooded area drops about 30 feet in a steep slope in one direction, adjoining Patapsco Valley State Park on two sides. The restaurant's owner wants to build 10 townhouses there, though zoning doesn't allow it and the Baltimore County planning staff has strongly recommended against it. "How do you develop on land like this?" said County Councilman Tom Quirk, pointing into the woods. He persuaded the council to revoke its approval of the project on Frederick Road, but a fellow lawmaker wants to put it back on track.

For all the Job-like travails residents of Cockeysville and Timonium had to endure last week, from the heavy snows and school closings to power outages and a particularly ill-timed water main break, the one that evoked the most anxiety can be expressed in three letters — P-U-D. It was a hardship not sent from the heavens but from a Catonsville developer. A PUD or Planned United Development refers to a regulatory mechanism that allows a builder to essentially sidestep the normal zoning process in order to provide innovative development, the parameters of which can be negotiated with local residents.
