Kohli Flick and her crew of three employees were putting on the finishing touches for the official grand opening of her home goods, accessories and gift store, Becket Hitch, in Green Spring Station, over this weekend. The new storefront arrived weeks ago. The custom furniture - a yellow sofa and navy armchair, both from High Point, N.C. - was scheduled to arrive any day. Flick said the bold colors would show well against the white and bright aesthetic of the store. "It's always been a dream to have my own store," said the 32-year-old, who worked for six years as the head of visual merchandising for Trohv, the home goods store in Hampden.

A decision by a Baltimore County zoning official allowing construction of a kennel in an exclusive Green Spring Valley neighborhood has the property owner and project opponents claiming victory. Deputy Zoning Commissioner Timothy M. Kotroco ruled this week that Greta White and her daughter, Erika Lanasa, can build a kennel on their 6-acre property in the 7800 block of Greenspring Ave., just north of a Baltimore Beltway exit ramp. But Kotroco also said the kennel and its parking lot must fit on a 1,700-square-foot triangle of land on the property.

Its name, one might say, is a Beltway accident; not a collision, but a bit of I-695 serendipity.The accidental naming of Green Spring Health Services might nTC seem a symbol for a company that was in the right place at the right time -- and made the most of it.While the managed mental health care industry is growing quickly, Green Spring is growing even more quickly -- from 2 million members covered and $12 million in revenue in 1991 to almost 15 million covered...

My tablemates at Tark's Grill had never dined there before, so I gave them a brief history lesson. I told them about Harvey's, the restaurant that flourished in this Green Spring Station location for about 20 years, from the early 1980s to 2000, and about the string of ambitious restaurants that moved into the space after Harvey's closed. None of them lasted long, and the location began to feel jinxed. Then Tark's opened in 2008, and all was right again. Now, as then, the secret to the success of Tark's was a simple formula.

Neighbors, preservationists and an owner of property at Green Spring Station in Lutherville are challenging a plan for new health and wellness offices at the upscale shopping and office center. The groups say Baltimore County improperly issued building permits for work at the complex off Falls Road, and they have filed an appeal with the county Board of Appeals. The developer, Foxleigh Enterprises, wants to remove most of a tennis barn at the Green Spring Racquet Club to make way for a building that would feature medical offices, fitness equipment and rehabilitation services.

I was very happy to see that additional development was barred at Green Spring Station and that common sense prevailed in our county's decision making. Anyone who travels through this intersection during the week days, especially rush hours, can tell you this is a failing intersection that it fully deserves its "F" rating. To those legislators who upgraded it as a "D" rating, I would suggest that without major improvements in place beforehand, any further development at Green Spring Station would overnight decrease its rating to a "F". For this reason, I believe the restriction that prohibits development only near "F" rated intersections should be expanded to include "D" rated roadways and intersections; this is only common sense, guys.

A vote by the Baltimore County Council on Monday will bar new development at Green Spring Station in Lutherville for the near future. Developers cannot build near intersections graded "F" under the county's "basic services maps," which identify deficiencies in public infrastructure throughout the county. The council approved the maps Monday. The intersection of West Joppa and Falls roads near Green Spring Station — which has shops, restaurants and offices — had been labeled failing for about a decade, and the planning board recommended "F" again this year.

How bad is traffic at Falls and Joppa roads in Baltimore County? It depends whom you ask, and the answer could determine whether the county allows additional growth near the intersection. A dispute over the intersection near Green Spring Station, a collection of shops, restaurants and offices in Lutherville, was the subject of a County Council discussion last week. Council members are scheduled to vote Monday on the county's "basic services maps," which identify deficiencies in the county's sewer, water and transportation infrastructure plans.

Green Spring Station - a collection of boutiques, restaurants and offices near the northern end of the Jones Falls Expressway - commands some of the highest rent in Baltimore County. Visitors can shop for French linens at Paris-based Yves Delorme, try on mink at furrier Mano Swartz, and play squash at the Green Spring Racquet Club. Now, though, owner Foxleigh Enterprises says a County Council vote has stymied its plans for an addition and renovations, putting the Lutherville development at a competitive disadvantage.
