Your recent article did a good job of updating readers on the status of transit-oriented development in Maryland ( "After delays, transit-oriented development starts to arrive," June 6). The economic recovery and renewed interest in living in smart growth, mixed-use communities is prompting developers to build around transit from White Flint to Owings Mills. However, the article lacked an explanation of why Marylanders need transit oriented development. Building housing, offices and stores next to transit in already-built communities is a key strategy to curb sprawl, protect the environment, create vibrant communities and make the best use of public investments in infrastructure.

I was recently one of the many citizens to attend the public workshop about the Baltimore Washington Intermodal Facility. I was impressed by the sheer volume of information presented. I am looking forward to additional information as plans progress, and encourage my fellow community members to be a part of this process as it continues. We need to let the process work and recognize the benefits of this facility to Maryland, wherever it is sited. We also have to remember that in order to grow the current job offerings in our community we need to objectively evaluate all opportunities presented.

Baltimore County residents sounded off Thursday on planned development in Owings Mills, an issue that has become highly contentious as the county considers whether to allow an upscale retail complex at the site of the former Solo Cup plant. A County Council hearing on zoning issues in District 2 focused on whether the manufacturing property off Reisterstown Road should be approved for retail use to make way for a 385,000-square-foot development called Foundry Row that would be anchored by a Wegmans supermarket.

The word on Torrey Smith when he entered the 2011 NFL Draft was that the wide receiver could become the vertical threat offenses desire. And he has done that for the Ravens, averaging 18.7 yards per catch in his rookie campaign and posting four of six touchdown receptions of at least 25 yards. But Smith also proved that he can make the necessary grabs on short and intermediate routes that produce first downs, not just highlight-reel scores. In the team's 24-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Smith caught five passes for 48 yards, averaging 9.6 yards - his second-lowest average when making at least three grabs this season.

The 11-acre site of a long-planned residential development in Laurel sold Friday for $8.5 million, the new Rockville-based owner said. The new owner, Cohen Siegel Investors, LLC, plans to start work on the first phase of the Hawthorne Place project in “early fall,” using designs approved under the previous ownership, said company owner Alan Cohen. The first phase involves 296 multi-family units and "ancillary" commercial space, according to a news release from Cushman & Wakefield of Maryland, Inc., which arranged the sale. The estimated cost of the first phase is $60 million, Cohen said.

So mayoral ex-boyfriend Ron Lipscomb gets a piece of the huge Uplands housing development even though, as The Sun's John Fritze reports, a city review panel recommended another team. And that's surprising? I was more surprised to see Michael Cryor is in on the deal. Cryor is chairman of the Maryland Democratic Party. It's not the moonlighting that gets me. In a true-blue state like Maryland, maybe selling the Democratic dream isn't full-time work. Little wonder if Cryor also has time to run a company, the Cryor Group, which has a 1.5 percent interest in the $200 million Uplands project.
