Developers in some parts of northeastern Baltimore County would no longer be able to squeeze new properties onto existing lots without a new road, under a bill introduced by three County Council members Monday. The bill, set for a vote next month, would ban new "panhandle lots" in Parkville, Cub Hill and Carney, a move meant to control density. It was introduced by David Marks, a Perry Hall Republican; Cathy Bevins, a Middle River Democrat; and Todd Huff, a Lutherville Republican.

Councilman David Marks has stood with the citizens of Carney in refusing to introduce a planned unit development (PUD) for the former Bill Bateman property located north of the Harford and Northwind roads intersection in Cub Hill. This is the last property south of the URDL (Urban Rural Demarction Line). This decision was an important one. Marks told me about the PUD and the meeting of the Northwind Townhomes Home Owners Association (HOA) and I attended the meeting with permission of HOA. The PUD proposed by Kirby as presented to the HOA board was to build 160 apartments on the site.

Tim Sherman of Cub Hill writes: I fish at several locations in lower Gunpowder Falls State Park. It appears that anti-erosion measures have been taken to curb rain runoff near the parking area at Harford Road. I understand and applaud the effort. However, the conservation effort has made parking very dangerous. The width of the parking lot is so narrow that if you turn to back in, you have to go across two travel lanes. If you pull in, you have to back out into travel lanes. Anyone with a large SUV or extend cab pickup can forget about parking there.

While I totally respect Chris Bolgiano's right to decide "not to be" ("An overpopulated, over-consuming world needs people willing not to procreate", May 9) and truly admire her global motivation, as for me, I would rather see (and the world would surely need) a child created and nurtured by someone so intelligent and talented as she is, than 10 children born to others who are not.
