The Baltimore County Council agreed last night to designate as a bird sanctuary an area in Cub Hill that includes a neighborhood of condominiums. The bill imposes fines for killing or injuring wild birds in a 24-acre area that includes the Doncaster Village condominiums, near Bellbeck Road. County officials said the legislation restates a federal law against bird killings and will have no effect on county land-use policy, as some of the bill's supporters had hoped. Also last night, the council agreed on a development package requiring property owners to start building houses within four years of the approval of their development plans.

Dozens of homeowners bent the collective ear of the County Council yesterday, hoping to influence members' positions on a set of controversial road-extension plans in their Ellicott City neighborhood.While the council did not make a decision at last night's public hearing on the proposed capital budget, it did get an earful from residents armed with maps, protest signs and photographs.At issue is a proposal to link Hale Haven Drive with Doncaster Drive and New Cut Road with Chews Vineyard to divert traffic off congested Worthington Way.Residents along Hale Haven and Doncaster drives have complained that their neighborhood will become a dumping ground for the greater community's traffic woes.

Just up the road from a Big Kmart-anchored strip mall in eastern Baltimore County sits a neighborhood of condominiums, with patches of trees and nearby woods. On a recent afternoon, a truck delivered UPS packages, and children with backpacks walked the sidewalks. A peaceful suburban community, yes. But a bird sanctuary? That has been the reaction of some to a proposal to designate 24 acres in the Doncaster Village area of the county as such. A County Council bill, up for a vote today, would restate the provisions of a federal law that sets fines for injuring or killing wild birds.

The Howard County Council approved funding for two controversial road connections in the Worthington area of Ellicott City yesterday as part of a $131 million capital budget.The plan to connect Hale Haven and Doncaster drives -- which has bitterly divided the neighborhood -- was funded, as was a connection between New Cut Road and Chews Vineyard, which has been criticized on environmental grounds.The moves are intended to divert traffic from congested Worthington Way, the only route out of several subdivisions built north of the original Worthington development.

Residents in the area have vowed to fight the plan by making their voices heard at a series of county budget hearings and work sessions, including one next week.

More than 200 residents of the greater Worthington area of Ellicott City agreed last night that Worthington Way -- the only way in and out of the neighborhood -- has too much traffic.But the residents couldn't find a solution that would relieve congestion and please everyone.At a public workshop at Worthington Elementary School, the nine-member Worthington Vicinity Task Force discussed two recommendations it plans to submit to Howard County officials.But residents in the audience voiced differences over a proposal to connect Doncaster and Hale Haven drives, which would divert 66 percent of the traffic from well-traveled Worthington Way to narrower Hale Haven Drive.
