A new developer is proposing a smaller, more environmentally attuned housing project on a heavily wooded hill in southwestern Columbia, replacing an earlier plan that created a furor among area residents over traffic and the impact on the Middle Patuxent River. Simpson Mill is the new name for what was once called the Riverdale townhouse project at the northeast corner of Route 32 and Cedar Lane, just south of the river. It is much smaller, but traffic congestion and environmental issues remain concerns, community members said.

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.

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.
