It is unusual for me to side with developers, but your article about the Chestnut Ridge property being re-zoned to accommodate nine houses instead of the more lucrative zoning that currently exists is just wrong ("Developer sues Balto. Co. Council," Dec. 24). I understand the issue with the Greenspring Valley Association, but the proper time to change the zoning is during the Comprehensive Zoning Map. This allows residents time to air their views and get a fair hearing. Residents cannot be expected to go to meetings every time a councilperson wants to change zoning.

Residents who live near the former Chestnut Ridge Country Club and golf course are once again fighting to preserve the sprawling Lutherville property, where a developer wants to build 85 luxury homes. Last year, the Baltimore County Council voted to drastically reduce the number of homes that could be built on the 230-acre site off Falls Road - the largest contiguous piece of land for miles around. But now a developer who had bought the land before that vote is asking the county to overturn the decision, arguing it is being unfairly denied the ability to build on its property.

The Baltimore County Planning Board is set to hear public comment Thursday on a former golf course and country club off of Falls Road in Lutherville that's been the subject of a zoning dispute. A public hearing about the former Chestnut Ridge Country Club is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the Jefferson Building, located at 105 Chesapeake Ave. in Towson. The County Council voted last year to limit development on the approximately 230-acre property, following the recommendation of Councilwoman Vicki Almond, a Reisterstown Democrat who represents the district where the site is located.

Three of his birdies were two-putt efforts on par-5s, and the other three were on putts inside 10 feet.

Usually quick to dash into burning buildings to save lives and spare the structures, the firefighters of Chestnut Ridge Volunteer Fire Company stood by yesterday as their firehouse disintegrated. It was demolition day for the 60-member company, which will move into more modern and spacious quarters this fall when a $1.6 million fire station is constructed on the same spot. "I don't look at this as destruction," fire company President Rick Yaffe said as concrete and brick walls came crashing down, steel beams twisted and sheet metal fluttered like tissue paper in the breeze.

A battle over the future of the closed Chestnut Ridge golf course in Lutherville is continuing, with the company that bought the property now suing the Baltimore County Council over its decision to limit the land's development potential. In a lawsuit filed last month in Baltimore County Circuit, CR Golf Club LLC, which has ties to Timonium developer Cignal Corp., claims council members made an unfair land-use decision this summer that limited the number of homes that can be built on the approximately 230-acre property off Falls Road.

Tall, tangled grass grows on parts of the golf course at the former Chestnut Ridge Country Club. The buildings are locked. No one plays. The club closed last fall amid financial problems and a legal fight with former members. Now, its sprawling land in Lutherville is the subject of another battle. Nearby property owners are asking the Baltimore County Council to protect the land, worried that a developer will damage the environment and clog local roads by building homes there. "That green space, that stream valley was always an open space that this community knew as a golf course for nearly 60 years," said Howard Schulman, who lives on Broadway Road.

It's easy to miss the small "Members Only" sign along a heavily wooded section of Falls Road in Lutherville. But for those who belonged, the Chestnut Ridge Country Club offered 240 secluded acres where they could golf, play tennis, swim and gather for card games. Now, after more than 50 years as "a haven from the rigors of work and home," Chestnut Ridge has closed amid financial problems - and a legal fight with dozens of ex-members. The parking lot at the sprawling property was vacant on a recent afternoon.
