Baltimore County Council members rejected state funding Monday for a planned low-income housing development in Rosedale, passing a resolution expressing disapproval of the project. In a 6-0 vote, with Councilman Kenneth Oliver abstaining, council members turned down more than $1 million in funding from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development for a project planned by the nonprofit Homes for America. "Baltimore County is becoming poorer and poorer, and a lot of people can't afford high-end housing," said Oliver, a Randallstown Democrat, after the council meeting.

Anne Arundel County officials are negotiating to buy 120 acres of waterfront property that would link two other wooded tracts and create a regional 200-acre North County park on Stony Creek.The resulting park on the Marley Neck peninsula would be slightly smaller than the 240-acre Downs Memorial Park in Pasadena. It would preserve a green wedge on the rapidly developing peninsula and offer a refuge in the mostly paved-over Glen Burnie-North County area.The site for the unnamed park has about a half-mile of waterfront on Big Burley Cove and Stony Creek.

A Baltimore City-mandated citizens' advisory committee that few people knew existed until this month scrambled to meet Saturday, ahead of a Monday deadline to make recommendations to the Planning Department about a proposed shopping center with a Walmart store in Remington. Although 15 area residents attended the meeting at Corky's Grill near the development site, only two were committee members, so the five-member committee lacked a quorum and can only issue "a report of those present," said John Viles, who chaired the meeting.
