In an abrupt reversal, federal housing officials canceled a scheduled meeting this week with residents of Bywater Mutual Homes Inc. and announced they did not intend to continue with foreclosure proceedings against the publicly assisted Annapolis townhouse complex. Bruce C. Bereano, a lobbyist representing the Bywater residents, said objections from Maryland's two U.S. senators and other elected officials helped avert foreclosure on the 1972 property. "They [HUD] came under pressure with a quick outpouring of government support," Bereano said.

ISSUE: Hoping to quell a spate of shootings that wounded four teenagers in less than a week, Anne Arundel and Annapolis officials vowed to employ a "full-court press" in one of the city's 10 public housing neighborhoods. County Executive John R. Leopold said the plan to improve the Robinwood complex was the first step toward a long-term goal of stopping rivalries in the city's public housing communities. Authorities say violence at Annapolis High and a fight and shooting in November at Westfield Annapolis mall stemmed from rivalries in the Robinwood and Annapolis Gardens public housing complexes.

Federal housing officials said last week that the property had fallen into serious disrepair and failed two consecutive annual inspections, which led to their move to withdraw federal mortgage insurance. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development subsidizes rents at the complex, which is owned by a nonprofit corporation controlled by residents.

After five years of tense legal battles, acrimonious residents' meetings, voluminous traffic studies and redrafted plans, the Crab Cove development on the Annapolis Neck peninsula is one step from approval. The 104-acre project, slated to include 172 residences ranging in price from $300,000 to about $650,000, cleared several hurdles on its way to the Annapolis Board of Appeals, where it landed last month. The board, which has the final word on the project proposed for an area between Bywater Road and Greenbriar Lane south of Forest Drive, will issue its final decision by Feb. 6, Chairwoman Judith Billage said Friday.
