Environmental groups yesterday praised the Ehrlich administration's agreement -- announced a day before the election -- to spend up to $10 million preserving two-thirds of the farmland targeted for a sprawling subdivision near the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Dorchester County. But the memorandum of understanding with the Blackwater Resort developer, which was released this week, includes a requirement that the state's purchase of 754 acres be approved by the state Board of Public Works before Ehrlich leaves office in January.

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.

The plan to redevelop the former site of Anne Arundel Medical Center - the first major residential construction project in Annapolis' historic district in decades - appeared to satisfy the city's Board of Appeals last night. The board expects to meet again to draft and vote on an official opinion on the proposed development. In its discussion last night, the board seemed ready to approve the 114-unit Acton's Landing development of condominium apartments, townhouses and single-family homes, despite opposition by a group of nearby residents who had pushed for fewer homes on the site than proposed by the developer, a limited partnership led by Virginia-based Madison Homes.

Baltimore's first Lowe's home improvement store and a supermarket would anchor a $65 million mixed-use project straddling Charles Village and Remington under a retail developer's plans to transform the site of Anderson Automotive, a fixture since the mid-1950s. Developer Rick Walker unveiled plans Wednesday to build the home improvement store and a grocer, along with 32,000 square feet of specialty shops and up to 60 apartments on 11 acres roughly bounded by 25th Street to the north, Maryland Avenue to the east, 24th Street to the south and the CSX rail line to the west.

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.

The developers of the new Cobblestone development in th Owings Mills area had this problem: How do you fit 118 houses on a development site that normally would accommodate only 80?Talles Homes' solution: a site-development plan called Z-lot. The luxury homes are placed on narrow 6,000-square-foot lots with staggered placements of L-shaped side yards.On a Z-lot, the space around the house zigzags like the letter Z, and even though the houses are close together, there are windows on all four sides.

Defying Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake and city redevelopment officials, Baltimore's preservation commission voted Tuesday to add the former Read's drugstore to the city's "special list" of landmarks, an action that protects the building from demolition for at least six months. Baltimore's Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation voted 7-1 to grant temporary landmark status to the city-owned building because it was the site of a 1955 lunch counter sit-in that had national significance in the U.S. civil rights movement.
